Avascular Necrosis Of The Hip Mri
After having hip pain due to injury, MRI showed "avascular necrosis of the hips bilaterally, right greater than left". Is this curable or permanent ?

If not, you need to find out why you have it, including rare genetic causes, infections and medications. You should make sure you get a reason for it at your age. Some early results have been seen with stem cell replacement. Next step is hip replacement if it gets too bad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
