Trusted Care for Osteonecrosis of the Knee and Hip

Osteonecrosis of the knee and hip can happen when something stops blood flow to a bone, such as a broken thigh bone or dislocated hip. Your bones need blood to build new tissue and keep them healthy and strong. When blood flow is cut off, it weakens the bone and causes pain. 

Our orthopedic specialists provide the latest osteonecrosis therapies. Our advanced treatments for knee and hip osteonecrosis restore joint movement and help you walk without pain. 

Osteonecrosis Risk Factors 

Bone injuries can reduce or stop blood flow to the bone, but certain diseases like obesity, lupus, sickle cell disease and some blood vessel conditions can also increase the risk of osteonecrosis. Additional risk factors include alcohol overconsumption, steroid and HIV medicines and radiation therapy. 

Osteonecrosis Hip and Knee Symptoms We Treat 

Osteonecrosis symptoms develop gradually over several months to a year. The first symptom is pain in your hip or the inside of your knee. As the condition worsens, it gets difficult to stand or put weight on the affected hip or knee, and moving the joint is painful. It’s important to see your doctor, if you have symptoms, because early treatment can lead to a better outcome.  

Knee and Hip Osteonecrosis Treatments We Offer 

Initial osteonecrosis therapies focus on stopping further bone loss. Medicines can relieve pain and help prevent blood vessel blockages. Physical therapy can help strengthen leg muscles, improve joint motion and relieve pain.  

Nonsurgical approaches work well in the early stages of knee osteonecrosis, but more advanced bone damage often requires surgery. For hip osteonecrosis, surgery is usually the most successful treatment. 

Our orthopedic specialists have advanced skills and capabilities to repair joints and restore bone health. We develop a personalized treatment plan to relieve pain and get you back on your feet, as quickly as possible.
