Surgery is an option although it is not usually required for cases of trochanteric bursitis, because most patients respond well to nonsurgical treatment. However, longitudinal release of the ITB combined with subgluteal bursectomy appears to be a safe and effective treatment for patients with symptoms that are refractory to conservative management.Only rarely does a patient with trochanteric bursitis need a bursectomy and partial resection of the greater trochanteric process.
