Stop gap procedures are in my opinion, ineffectual. ...Read more

Is there a natural cure or any other alternative than prosthesis for avascular necrosis in hip. If no for how long would the prosthesis last. I'm 30?
See details: There is no natural cure. In avn the blood supply to the head of the hip has been compromised to the extent that the bone has died and collapsed. If it reaches that stage replacing the femoral head is the only option. Early stage avn can be treated by non-weight bearing or core depression. The replacement should last 20+ years depending on your weight, activities, etc. ...Read more
