Tronchanteric Bursitis

Trochanteric Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled sac near a joint) at the outside (lateral) point of the hip known as the greater trochanter. When this bursa becomes irritated or inflamed, it causes pain in the hip. This is a common cause of hip pain. Patients with trochanteric bursitis will return normal hip Xrays.
