At London Private Ultrasound the injections are done by an experienced, highly skilled radiology consultant – qualified doctor on General Medical Council’s Specialist Register– who has national and international subspecialty fellowships in MSK imaging and is also a lead musculoskeletal radiologist in the NHS. We are located just a few moments walk from Bond Street Tube Station in Central London and can also provide a team of experienced clinicians – to help guide you through the most suitable diagnosis and treatment plans.

Ultrasound Barbotage – Shoulder


You will be offered a complete consultation and assessment of your condition by the consultant with a diagnostic ultrasound scan to confirm the diagnosis. Where appropriate and following a thorough consent process, an Ultrasound Guided Injection would be performed. This would be done using an aseptic technique with adherence to all infection prevention and control guidelines. The MSK radiologist’s expertise and accuracy in performing the procedure will ensure maximum comfort and efficacy which is especially reassuring for patients with prior unpleasant encounters with injections and fear of needles.

This procedure is mostly necessary for the following:

  • Impingement/Bursitis
  • Adhesive Capsulitis/ frozen shoulder ( e.g. steroid injection or Hydrodilatation)
  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • Calcific tendonitis ( e.g. for Barbotage)
  • Biceps tendinopathy
  • Arthritis (Inflammatory and Degenerative i.e. Osteoarthritis) in Glenohumeral joint or Acromioclavicular joint (ACJ)

You will then be given the necessary aftercare advice and issued a complete report of your ultrasound findings and procedural details. You do not require a referral to book or attend an appointment with the London Private Ultrasound Clinics. Please select the day and time that is most convenient to you on the calendar provided, in order to book your appointment, if you prefer you may use any of the links provided to call the clinic and ask any questions for guidance or advice.
