Avascular Necrosis of Hip Treatment
Shri Ramchandra Joint Replacement is providing the Best Treatment options For Avascular Necrosis of Hip.
We have dealt with many patients suffering from Avascular Necrosis of hip and have enabled them to walk with happy hips.
However, it is very important to identify and treat Avascular Necrosis of Hip or AVN of Hip.
Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the hip, also known as osteonecrosis, is a condition in which the blood supply to the bone of the hip joint is disrupted, leading to the death of bone tissue. This can cause pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the hip joint. AVN of the hip can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, long-term use of corticosteroids, excessive alcohol consumption, and certain medical conditions such as sickle cell disease. Treatment options for AVN of the hip may include medication, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery such as hip replacement or bone grafting.Symptoms of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the hip can include:
Pain in the hip joint, which may be mild at first and gradually become more severe
Stiffness and reduced range of motion in the hip joint
Difficulty walking or standing for extended periods of time
Aching or throbbing pain in the groin or buttocks
Pain that worsens with activity and improves with rest
Eventually, the hip joint may collapse, leading to severe pain and disability.
Please book your appointment with us if you experience these symptoms, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent further damage to the hip joint.
The treatment of avascular necrosis (AVN) in the early stages aims to prevent further damage to the affected bone and improve blood flow to the area. This may include:
Medications: Bisphosphonates, a type of medication, may help to slow down the progression of AVN by reducing bone loss and promoting bone formation.
Rest and limited weight-bearing: Limiting weight-bearing activities can help to reduce stress on the affected bone, allowing it to heal. Crutches or a walker may be necessary to avoid putting weight on the affected leg.
Physical therapy: Range-of-motion and stretching exercises may help to maintain joint flexibility and reduce stiffness.
Electrical stimulation therapy: This therapy uses low-level electrical currents to stimulate bone growth and improve blood flow.
Core decompression: A surgical procedure that involves drilling a hole into the affected bone to relieve pressure and stimulate new blood vessel growth.
Stem cell therapy: In some cases, stem cells may be injected into the affected bone to promote healing and regeneration.
The treatment plan for AVN depends on the stage of the disease and individual circumstances, so it's important to discuss all available options with our expert joint replacement specialist Dr Sivaiah Potla M.S(Ortho) FAJR(Singapore, Germany, U.S.A).
Patients with avascular necrosis (AVN) of the hip require ongoing care and management to prevent further damage to the affected bone and maintain their overall health. Some tips for caring for patients with AVN of the hip may include:
Avoiding high-impact activities that place stress on the hip joint, such as running or jumping.
Maintaining a healthy weight, as excess weight can put additional pressure on the hip joint.
Quitting smoking, as smoking can impair blood flow and increase the risk of complications.
Taking medications as prescribed by a doctor, and attending regular check-ups to monitor the progression of the disease.
Engaging in low-impact exercise, such as swimming or cycling, to maintain joint flexibility and strengthen the muscles around the hip joint.
Using assistive devices such as crutches or a walker, as recommended by a doctor, to avoid putting weight on the affected leg.
Ensuring that the patient receives adequate nutrition and hydration to support bone health and overall well-being.
It's important for patients with AVN of the hip to work closely with your doctor to develop an individualized care plan that best suits you.
