Treatment for Avascular NecrosisAvascular necrosis is the slow decay of the bones caused due to reduction in the supply of blood to the region. This may result in joint aches and weak bones. If left untreated, it may also cause an eventual collapse and distortion of the weakened bone which may cause fractures, joint dislocations or severe arthritis.

Treatment for Avascular Necrosis

The goals when treating avascular necrosis are to ensure that the pain is reduced, the progression of the bone damage is stopped and the functioning of the affected joint is rehabilitated. The best treatment options available to a patient will be determined by a number of factors which include the patient’s age, severity of the disease, location and amount of bone damage and causative factors for the disease.
