Abstract

This article describes how a PA-led fluoroscopic guided joint injection program was established at a private orthopaedic practice. Requirements for establishing the program, including setting up a fluoroscopic suite, training PAs and radiology technicians, and procedural workflow, will be discussed. The article also discusses why PAs who practice in orthopaedics are ideal candidates to administer fluoroscopic guided joint injections and how such a program can be beneficial to an orthopaedic practice.
