Hip Cortisone Injection Treatment
Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure. Cortisone, an anti-inflammatory drug, is given to relieve the pain of hip bursitis. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that allows smooth motion between two uneven surfaces in the hip, a bursa rests between the bony prominence over the outside of the hip (the greater trochanter) and the firm tendon that passed over this bone. When the bursal sac becomes inflamed, each time the tendon has to move over the bone, pain results.
Because patients with hip bursitis move this tendon with each step, hip bursitis symptoms can be quite painful.
The cost of a hip cortisone injection treatment is per injection. Treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, cost of drugs, and any related medical procedures required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
