Hip osteonecrosis orthopedic hip surgery is offered by the best in class hip surgeons of Orthopedic Hip Surgeons of NYC. Nonsurgical treatment of osteonecrosis is limited and orthopedic hip surgery remains the gold standard for treatment. Non-surgical treatments have a certain amount of effectiveness for cases of early-stage disease (ficat stage 1) however, the risk of disease progression is greater with nonsurgical treatment than with orthopedic hip surgery intervention.
Hip osteonecrosis is the result of a lack of adequate blood supply to the femoral head. Without adequate blood supply nourishment, the bone in the head of the femur dies and gradually collapses. As a result, the articular cartilage covering the hip bones also collapses, leading to disabling and painful arthritis of the hip.
