ORA physicians work together with you to provide one-on-one diagnosis and treatment options for all orthopedic conditions and injuries.

Avascular necrosis (or osteonecrosis) is a rare condition characterized by the death of bone tissue from a lack of blood supply. As the disease progresses, the bone can develop small cracks and eventually collapse. Prompt diagnosis and treatment is critical to minimizing the effects of avascular necrosis, which can manifest as near-constant joint pain.

A number of treatment approaches may be taken based on your specific symptoms, overall health and the extent of the disease.  We take a conservative approach that focuses on non-surgical treatment options that help restore your movement and function, when possible.

Avascular necrosis treatment options include:

  • Prescription medication to provide pain relief and slow bone deterioration.
  • Physical therapy to improve or maintain the range of motion in the affected joints.
  • Gentle electrical stimulation to help promote bone growth.
  • Joint replacement surgery to replace severely damaged portions of the joint.

At ORA Orthopedics’ Total Joint Center of Excellence, our treatment begins with how we treat you. Our doctors take a patient-centered approach to avascular necrosis that focuses on reducing symptoms, preserving bone health, and improving overall quality of life.
