Bursitis, Saint Louis, Missouri


Bursitis in the hip typically involves the greater trochanteric bursa on the outside of the joint. The bursa normally helps tendons glide smoothly over bony prominences, but it can become inflamed. A patient’s hip is usually tender to the touch and complain of symptoms at night when he/she lays on the affected side. The initial treatment involves anti-inflammatories, physical therapy and steroid injections. If all of these therapies fail, an arthroscopic bursectomy may be performed to alleviate the symptoms.
