Treating Avascular Necrosis of the hip in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Avascular Necrosis of the hip is a painful condition that occurs when the blood supply to the bone is disrupted. The affected bone cells die, and the dead bone weakens exposing the bone and joint to possible fractures and collapse. It most commonly affects the head of the femur, but can also affect other bones in the body. This condition is most often caused by injury, such as a break or dislocation and affects more than 20,000 people each year.

Symptoms

This condition develops in stages but the first symptom is typically hip pain. Pain may be noticeable during physical activity, but eventually the joint may hurt even at rest. As it progresses it will become more difficult to stand and put weight on the affected hip and the pain becomes more severe.

Treatment

Although medications, exercises and rest may slow the progression of the disease or condition, the most successful treatment options are surgical. Surgical options may include core decompression, bone reshaping, osteotomy, bone grafting or joint replacement and some studies show that early intervention results in better outcomes.

If you are experiencing hip pain, weakness of the hip, stiffness of the hip or night time hip pain, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
