Steroid Injection

This procedure involves injecting steroid medication into the joint space. It will help decrease inflammation in the joint. Once the inflammation is under control, stiffness, swelling and motion will improve.

Steroid injections can be done in the Rheumatology Clinic, by your doctor or in Interventional Radiology by an interventional radiologist. Interventional Radiology is located at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Location A.
