Benjamin DuBois, MD


Dr. Benjamin DuBois specializes in advanced diagnostic services for shoulder conditions, utilizing cutting-edge ultrasound technology. This non-invasive technique aids in the diagnosis of rotator cuff disorders and allows for the precise placement of a needle for ultrasound-guided injections of PRP and steroids.

Visualizing the Structure

Shoulder ultrasound allows Dr. DuBois to visualize the structures within the shoulder joint, including tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joint spaces, in real time. This enables him to evaluate the integrity of these structures, detect abnormalities, and help determine the underlying cause of shoulder pain or dysfunction. The use of ultrasound also allows him to guide needles accurately for the placement of PRP and steroid injections.

Extensive Experience

Dr. DuBois has extensive experience and a deep understanding of shoulder anatomy and pathology, allowing him to perform comprehensive evaluations and provide precise diagnoses. During the examination, Dr. DuBois will apply a gel to the skin over the shoulder area and use a handheld device called a transducer to capture images. The transducer emits high-frequency sound waves that create detailed images on a monitor, ensuring a thorough examination of the shoulder joint.

Shoulder ultrasound offers numerous advantages over other imaging modalities, including no radiation exposure and dynamic imaging capabilities. This makes it a safe and effective option, especially for patients who may need multiple or frequent examinations. The information obtained from a shoulder ultrasound can guide the treatment plan and help in the decision-making process.

Interpreting the Ultrasound

Dr. DuBois can interpret the ultrasound images, provide a possible diagnosis, and discuss the findings with you. Based on the results, he may recommend further investigations or treatment tailored to your specific needs.

If you're experiencing shoulder pain, limited range of motion, or have a suspected shoulder injury, Dr. Benjamin DuBois is here to provide exceptional care using state-of-the-art shoulder ultrasound examinations to help with the diagnosis. His goal is to help you achieve optimal shoulder health and restore your quality of life.
