Shoulder Bursitis

Highly recommended for his experience and personalized patient care, Dr. Vangsness is a leading orthopaedic surgeon. The “bursa” is a cushioning fluid structure that is positioned between the top of the humerus and the tip of the shoulder. The bursa can sometimes become compressed and inflamed, leading to a painful “bursitis” condition called impingement. Depending on the severity of your injury, Dr. Vangsness may suggest surgery to help relieve the pain and discomfort in your shoulder.
