Bursitis can occur in the hips, elbows and shoulder. Our goal will be to reduce the inflammation in your bursa, which are sacs filled with fluid that cushion the muscles, tendons and bones near your joints. We will develop the best treatment plan for easing your pain, preventing further injury and helping you resume normal activities


Most bursitis can be treated without surgery. We may prescribe anti-inflammatory medicine, ice and a sling or brace to stabilize your shoulder. We may recommend physical therapy exercises, ultrasound or massage to help the area heal. If your symptoms continue, we may suggest a cortisone shot. If you require surgery, we will use minimally invasive methods to reduce your pain and recovery time.
