Before Holly Krieg saw Dr. Alan Hirahara, MD, FRCSC, she suffered through painful cortisone shots delivered by a different orthopedic surgeon.
“He just shoved a needle directly into my knee cap and I was in excruciating pain,” says Holly. “It didn’t alleviate any pain. Then I went to see Dr. Hirahara and he has put me on the right path to pain relief.”
Watch Holly’s 3-minute interview to learn how see Dr. Hirahara performed an intra-articular hyaluronic acid injection using the Clarius L15 HD to bring her pain relief from degenerative joint disease in her knees.
Dr. Hirahara has been using ultrasound for procedure guidance for more than 10 years. He has been a Clarius user and a member of our advisory board since we introduced our first wireless handheld ultrasound system in 2016.
