Knee Bursitis Treatment - Dubai Orthopedic Clinic

What is knee bursitis:

The bursitis on its own is an inflammation within the bursa which is lubricating the tissue between the tendons, the joint, and the surrounding tissues. The knee joint is famous for having a lot of bursae around the joint, and tendons, and in many locations, therefore, it is a very popular location where bursitis can arise. If the inflammation becomes excessive, fluid collection can happen and this would cause a pressure symptom around the surrounding tissue and pain.

Symptoms of Knee Bursitis:

Knee bursitis commonly presents with the following symptoms:

  • Swelling around the kneecap
  • Pain, especially when kneeling or bending the knee
  • Warmth and redness over the affected area
  • Limited range of motion in the knee joint

Diagnosing Knee Bursitis:

Diagnosing knee bursitis involves a combination of physical examination, medical history review, and sometimes imaging tests like X-rays or MRI scans. An orthopedic surgeon at Dr. Rami Hamed Center will perform thorough assessments to accurately diagnose the condition.

Treatment of Knee Bursitis:

A bursitis can be treated conservatively with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and sometimes, an aspiration under ultrasound guidance. In certain circumstances where the bursitis is recurrent and not recovering with a simple aspiration, surgery can be considered. The PRP treatment has become a very popular treatment for bursitis and it yields good results overall.

Knee bursitis can be a painful and limiting condition, but with the right treatment and expert care, patients can experience significant relief and improved quality of life. At Dr. Rami Hamed Center, our dedicated orthopedic surgeons specialize in treating knee bursitis using a patient-centered approach that considers the individual needs of each patient.
