Hip Osteonecrosis: Prevention and Treatment

What is the treatment for Hip Osteonecrosis?

Treating measures taken up by professionals to treat osteonecrosis are:

  • Drugs: Drugs like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, osteonecrosis drugs, cholesterol-lowering drugs are used in treating osteonecrosis.
  • Blood thinners: Blood thinners help in blood flow and prevent blood from clotting. Thus, ensuring that sufficient blood reaches the femoral head.
  • Rest and Exercise: Resting and exercise can help treat osteonecrosis and avoid further complications.
  • Surgery:  If a patient’s osteonecrosis condition is getting worse, doctors may perform a procedure called core decompression. It is the removal of a piece (core) of bone from the affected area, to try to improve blood flow.
