For many years Dr. Hirsch has been utilizing ultrasound guided injections as the state of the art technique to inject patients’ joints, tendon sheaths and nerves. He has many hours of advanced training in musculoskeletal ultrasound in order to provide the most effective, precise and economical injection techniques.
Dr. Hirsch has combined the utilization of STEM CELL injections for pain and regenerative capabilities with the specificity of utilizing ultrasound to deliver cells to the exact intended location.
