About Steroid Injections
What is it and how it’s performed?
Steroid Injections Overview
Steroid injections are a minimally invasive treatment option for wrist arthritis. Pain-relief occurs quickly if not immediately after the short in-office procedure and patients are able to return to normal day-to-day activities.
How is a steroid injection performed?
A Carolina Orthopaedics and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) hand specialist cleans and sterilizes the skin before the procedure. A numbing cream is applied to ensure the patient feels no pain or discomfort. A needle is carefully guided into the wrist joint and a steroid medication is delivered. A Band-aid is placed over the tiny needle mark. The wrist may be immobilized in a removable wrist splint.
What does a steroid injection treat?
A steroid injection is the ideal treatment option for moderate to severe wrist arthritis that does not improve after nonsurgical treatment but is not serious for surgery.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!
This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.
These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
