Can bursitis in the shoulder be treated by surgery?

Yes

Extremity-joint-shoulder
If you have exhausted all nonoperative options, including anti-inflammatory meds, therapy, activity modifications, and injections either steroid or toradol, then surgery becomes the remaining option. Typical surgery for this would be arthroscopic subacromial decompression. Recovery may take up to 2-3 months.

Clinically diagnosed sac iliac fracture 16mths Ago during childbirth non displaced no surgery but still in Lot of pain have tro bursitis in hip why?

Wrong diagnosis?

Hand_fracture
Fractures in this area can be associated with persistent pain. I walking with limp and pain this will lead to a secondary trochanteric bursitis. I would have a repeat ct or MRI completed to see if the fracture healed and institute some therapy. Trochanteric bursitis should resolve with pt and or an injection.

Shulder surgery in August 2013, for severe bursitis and bone shaved off as it rubbed against the muscle. all been well until it cracked and now pain?

Have it reevaluated

Pain
Then you must see the orthopedist and have the shoulder reevaluated. There is no way to determine the cause of the new pain over the internet.

Is elbow surgery a treatment option for bursitis? Years ago I slipped on ice and I hit the ground with my elbow absorbing most of the impact. My elbow has the classic bump of bursitis and looks ugly, not to mention shooting pain I get on occasion if I to

Bursitis
I would try a compressive wrap and an elbow pad to keep it from getting bumped and more swollen. Surgery can be performed but can have issues with wound healing and infection.

Hi I have bursitis in the shoulder and have been having physio. I have now had pins and needles in the fingers and hand for 5 days. What do I do.

See a physician

Bursitis
The symptoms you are having for this long could be from many sources- carpal tunnel syndrome, clerical nerve impingement or some metabolic or inflammatory disease. It is doubtful that it is related to the bursitis
