What can our specialists do for you?

A bursa is a protective pocket of fluid that occurs in the joints of the body, normally between the tendons and the bones.

This bursa can sometimes become inflamed or swollen, and this is known as bursitis. Because of the specific placement of bursae in the body, this type of swelling can result in discomfort and tenderness to the patient, localised to the affected area. The most common occurrence is in the elbows and knees.

Aspiration is recommended as part of an agreed plan between clinician and patient. A needle is inserted into the affected area to drain the fluid, after which a dressing is applied, and is usually done under local anaesthetic which is quick and convenient.
