How Much do steroid injections cost privately?
Steroid injections which are also know as cortisone injections are an effective treatment for pain and inflammation in conditions that have not responded to conservative treatment.
NHS waiting lists are currently very long and if you don’t have private medical insurance then you may consider having a steroid or cortisone injection done privately.
At Steroid Injections London our costs are all inclusive and can often be administered on the same day using an ultrasound scanner to ensure treatment accuracy.
The cost of having a steroid (cortisone) injection privately with us is outlined below along with injections for other procedures that do not include steroids.
Costs of a private steroid injection at Steroid Injections London:
Standard Steroid Injection £250
Advance procedure (eg Frozen Shoulder) £270
Cost of Steroid Injection
The price for an Ultrasound-guided injection includes:
- Ultrasound scan and musculoskeletal assessment
- Prescription of Medicine (There is no need for a GP referral – we can do all of this in house for you)
- Ultrasound-guided Injection
- Report of assessment and scan findings and details of injection
How do we keep our steroid injection costs low?
Paying for the same injection at a private hospital may be considerably more (£750-£1150). If you have private medical insurance then this is not an issue as they will usually pay the full fees. But if you are waiting on the NHS and need relief of your symptoms now, then paying privately is your best option.
At Steroid Injections London the clinician performing the injection is also the clinician assessing you with an ultrasound scanner and prescribing the medicine. That means it can all be done in one appointment and therefore is a cost effective solution.
Our clinicians hold Post Graduate Diplomas in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound including Ultrasound-Guided Injections and also prescribe medicines.
What if I don’t know what is wrong with me or what injection I need?
If you have not had a diagnosis from another clinician then it will be worth while first considering having an initial assessment with us to first understand the condition. We will provide an assessment, ultrasound scan, diagnosis and treatment plan before you decide to proceed with a steroid injection. We may be able to provide you with a treatment plan that does not involve any medication but a series of exercises and advice that may resolve the condition without having to have any injections. The majority of musculoskeletal pain can be effectively treated conservatively but if things do not resolve then you can still consider having an injection to help you recover faster.
We also have other interventions like Hyaluronic acid or PRP injections that are suitable for patients with joint arthritis and may have a longer lasting effect than a steroid injection.
We can provide steroid injections for conditions like Frozen Shoulder, Shoulder Impingement, Knee arthritis, Hip arthritis, Wrist and hand arthritis, Trigger finger, Mortons neuroma and Bursitis.
