Medication Delivery


Dr. Ralph Venuto is on the leading edge of orthopedics in his use of ultrasound technology. He uses ultrasound both to assist in the diagnosis of orthopedic conditions and to guide placement of injection therapies where they will be most beneficial. Previously offered only to elite athletes and professional sports teams, this technology is available to everyone at Dr. Venuto’s practice.

Who Can Benefit?

Pretty much everyone requiring injection therapy can benefit from the assistance of ultrasound technology. Peer-reviewed studies have found that injections performed without internal visualization result in improper placement of the injected medication more often than commonly thought. The use of ultrasound guidance ensures greater accuracy of medication delivery to structures such as the joints, muscle tendons, and diseased tissue. An added benefit for many patients is reduced pain compared to “blind” injections, because the medication is being delivered more effectively to the right places.

Choosing Dr. Venuto

Here are just a few reasons why so many people choose Dr. Ralph Venuto for their care.

  • Board-certified in orthopedic surgery and specializing in sports medicine and the treatment of knee and shoulder disorders.
  • Uses many of the latest techniques in orthopedic care, including stem cell treatment and PRP, to help his patients heal faster and have better results.
  • One of the first surgeons in the country to perform arthroscopic surgery, without adding trauma or scarring.
  • Named one of the “Best Doctors in Orange County” in Orange Coast Magazine’s “The Doctor’s Doctor.”

Treatment Details

This technology is not an independent treatment but rather is used in conjunction with injection therapies such as cortisone injections for precise placement in areas where Dr. Venuto believes the medication will be most effective. Both Dr. Venuto and the patient can watch in real time as the injection is placed.
