Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure. Cortisone Injection-Hip. Cortisone injections, an anti-inflammatory drug, are 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. Cost 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.
