Bursitis is a painful condition in which naturally-occurring spaces between two tissues (typically tendon and bone) -- known as bursa become inflamed, resulting in painful friction between your surrounding tissues and bone. Facing chronic pain, a loss of mobility, and overall negative effects on quality of life, many patients live with chronic bursitis, which is resistant to most traditional treatment options. This can lead to surgical resection, which can often produce sub-optimal results.
With state-of-the-art, fully-customizable biologics, Greyledge can support your physician in helping you eliminate pain caused by bursitis. Made using technology at the forefront of orthobiologic treatment, our PRP and BMC therapeutic injections for bursitis allow your doctor to tailor your treatment to your individual needs. For some patients, biologics can offer an alternative treatment for bursitis without a need for surgery or as an alternative to steroid injections. When applied by a specialist pre and post-operation, they can offer you a faster, more effective recovery from surgery.
Whatever your needs are as a patient, we’ll support your orthopedic specialist in giving you the relief you deserve. Ready to eliminate your bursitis pain? Talk to your doctor about Greyledge today, or find a Greyledge-affiliated orthopedic physician near you.
Greyledge’s capabilities include supporting physicians with a number of cutting-edge biologic preparations, including platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. Here’s how the process of creating PRP works:
PRP stimulates your body’s natural ability to reduce inflammation and help restore the tissues surrounding your joint that have been damaged as a result of bursitis. PRP can help physicians offer bursitis treatment in the following areas:

Like PRP, bone marrow cellular concentrate (BMC) can offer a surgical or non-surgical method of treating hip bursitis with stem cell therapy. Here’s how we prepare BMC:
Stem cells are unique in the fact that they don’t just serve a single purpose -- they exist at a stage in which they can transform into any other type of cell. Equally as important, they are critical to coordinate the healing process necessary to restore the joint tissue compromised by bursitis and rally other cells to do the same. This makes BMC extremely valuable in offering surgical or non-surgical treatment for bursitis in the hips, shoulders, knees, and more.
While bursitis and tendonitis, both involve inflammation of tissues. Bursitis specifically affects the bursa spaces over bony points in the body, while tendonitis affects tendons inserting into bones.
No. Greyledge creates autologous BMC products that physicians use for treating arthritis, bursitis & tendonitis along with other orthopedic conditions.
