Peritrochanteric diseases are recurrent cause of lateral hip pain that usually affects middle age and active women. Despite of questionable results, classically they have been managed in a conservative manner. Surgical techniques are reserved for those who had unsatisfactory results with conservative treatment. In a prospective case series of thirty-five patients we developed arthroscopic surgical treatment that included among the bursa resection, the release of the iliotibial band. 97% of the patients showed satisfactory results. In this article we describe our surgical approach and the middle term follow-up results.
