Bursectomy

Hi there,
Not too sure if you can assist me. My mom is going for a bursectomy operation. It is for a hip bursa and an arthroscopic procedure. What the general rate of success with this operation and have any deaths or side-affects been reported?

Any assistance will be much appreciated.
Thanks

Dear Misty
I know too little about these and your orthopedic surgeon would know best. The only suggestion I can make is that you make sure she goes to an orthopaedic surgeon with a good reputation and success rate.
