Orthopedic Hip Surgeons of NYC can properly diagnosis and treat your hip bursitis condition surgically and non-surgically (stem cell therapy injections). Hip bursitis, medically refereed to as “trochanteric bursitis” is a common hip pain ailment caused by inflammation of the bursa the overlies the greater trochanter (bony prominence on the outer side of the hip). The bursa of the hip is a small sac filled with fluid which acts as a cushion / lubrication and allows smooth range of motion by reducing the friction between the muscles and the bone. 

  • Hip bursitis commonly affects runners and athletes participating in soccer and football
  • This condition is more common among women and middle-aged or elderly people

Symptoms of Hip Bursitis

  • Pain in the outside portion of the hip, thigh area, or buttock
  • Your pain may be worse in the night, when lying on the affected side
  • Pain increases during activities such as prolonged walking, climbing stairs, squatting.
  • Pain may also aggravate while standing up after being in sitting position for a long time.

The diagnosis by our NYC board certified orthopedic hip surgeon of hip bursitis is typically made by a combination of the patient’s history, the findings on physical examination and x-ray evaluation. An MRI scan of the area helps exclude other conditions.

Treatment of Hip Bursitis (Surgical & Nonsurgical)

Conservative options (non-surgical) include rest, activity modification, prescription anti-inflammatory medication and steroid injections (which van be administered by our orthopedic surgeons onsite at our Upper East Side orthopedic surgery practice).

For patients with persistent pain and/or functional limitations, surgery is typically required to remedy the pain. Surgical options include minimally invasive arthroscopic hip surgery or open surgical debridement of the trochanteric bursa, and associated decompression of the IT band as needed. The best orthopedic hip surgery for your case will be dependent on proper diagnosis and your unique condition.
