WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NERVE HYDRODISSECTION
Nerve hydrodissection is a technique used when treating peripheral nerve entrapments. It involves using a solution to separate the nerve from the surrounding tissue, fascia, or adjacent structures. The procedure is done under ultrasound guidance.
The most common nerve treated is the median nerve for carpal tunnel syndrome. Solutions used for Hydrodissection include 5% dextrose and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
Nerve Hydrodissection treatments do not contain any drugs, steroids, narcotics or NSAIDs, are performed in the office and do not require surgery. Dr. Krasnick performs injections under ultrasound guidance, so he is highly accurate in injecting the treatment to the exact location needed. These treatments allow the body’s own natural healing powers to recover and restore to health.
