6 Things You Should Know About Treatment of AVN of the Hip

Avascular Necrosis (AVN) of the hip is a serious condition requiring timely intervention. Here are six key things to know about its treatment:

1. Early Diagnosis

Early detection is crucial for managing AVN effectively and preventing further damage to the hip joint.

2. Non-Surgical Options

Initial treatments may include medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications to manage symptoms and slow progression.

3. Core Decompression

This surgical procedure reduces bone pressure and enhances blood flow to the affected area, potentially halting AVN progression.

4. Bone Grafting

For more advanced cases, bone grafting can help reinforce and stabilize the hip joint.

5. Hip Replacement

Severe AVN may necessitate total hip replacement, offering significant pain relief and improved mobility.

6. Rehabilitation

Post-surgery rehabilitation is vital for regaining function and ensuring a successful recovery.
