Intra Articular Injection
An intra-articular joint injection is a common therapeutic procedure, which aims to reduce pain and inflammation in a joint from a condition like arthritis.
A nerve, skin, muscle or other tissue biopsy usually is a simple outpatient procedure. For a nerve biopsy, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. In this procedure, the doctor makes a small incision and removes a portion of the nerve, usually from the ankle or the calf.
In medicine, a muscle biopsy is a procedure in which a piece of muscle tissue is removed and examined microscopically. A muscle biopsy can lead to the discovery of problems with the nervous system, connective tissue, vascular system, or musculoskeletal system.
