|Rotator Cuff Calcific Tendonitis Treatment with
Ultrasound Guided Needle Lavage
A. X-ray of rotator cuff subacromial space calcium deposit
B. Ultrasound of needle insertion into calcium deposit. Calcium can then be lavaged, broken
up, and aspirated through the needle and into the syringe, without surgery.
C. Calcium tendon deposits seen in syringe after ultrasound needle, lavage, aspiration of
Dr. Silberman at New Jersey Sports Medicine specializes in ultrasound
examination of tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries and ultrasound
guided injections of cortisone, prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP),
bone marrow aspirate (stem cells), and ultrasound guided calcific
tendonitis needle lavage.
Dr. Silberman holds a certification in the specialty of musculoskeletal
sonography from the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical

Ultrasound guided calcific tendonitis/tendinitis needle lavage is a first
line treatment of calcific tendonitis of the shoulder or any joint.
Ultrasound guided calcific tendonitis needle lavage is an in office
procedure that avoids the costs and risks of surgery. Dr. Silberman's
method of calcific tendon needle lavage is essentially painless once local
anesthesia is acheived with a small needle and lidocaine injection.
With ultrasound guided calcific tendonitis needle lavage pain
disappeared in 89.26% and the calcification disappeared in 86.78%
patients treated. Study: Treatment of the calcific tendinopathy of the
rotator cuff by ultrasound-guided percutaneous needle lavage.
