Avascular necrosis Hip Treatment India

Avascular necrosis Hip

Avascular necrosis Hip

Do you suffer from Avascular necrosis hip in India? It is a common condition among young patients. Common causes include steroid intake, alcohol overuse, trauma besides others.
It needs prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Non operative methods fail in 80% cases. Surgery is invariably required. We offer Core decompression and stem cell treatment for early stages. In late cases with arthritis, I do short stem hip replacements. This presentation explains the complete range of treatment offered in my clinic. The treatment provided are
Core decompression.
Core decompression + Stem cell treatment.
Short stem hip replacement.
Total hip replacement.

I am glad things finally worked out in such a way that my I could get my cells implanted properly. Dr. Venkat is a rare specimen with a sharp mind and heart of gold.  I commend him for being impervious to intrusion into his surgical decision-making and knowledgeable enough to ascertain the value of the protocol I had worked on with scientific advisers  for months.  In my estimation, Dr. Venkat is a true asset to the world and you.  He did a heroic thing – taking on a complicated surgery on a complicated case at the last minute.  Dr Venkat’s actions helped both you and I come out of this OK and without conflict and the entire time he acted with generosity, grace, intelligence, and excellence.  We should both be very grateful to him.

Stem cell treatment AVN India.

Core decompression, Ossron, BMAC for AVN

Stem cell treatment AVN India.
Watch stem cell preparation in this video. A core decompression is the first part of the procedure. It removes dead bone and creates a vascular environment for in growth of stem cells. Following core decompression, various categories of stem cells were used to regenerate blood supply, connective tissue and bone.  The first product injected was Bone marrow aspirate and a bone substitute. This contains angiogenic cells plus mesenchymal stem cells which encourage growth of blood vessels into the affected area.  Then live cultured Osteoblast cells ( Ossron) was injected. Ossron is a trade name for ‘ Autologous osteoblast implantation”. Osteo blasts are bone forming cells.  The back end of the cavity was filled with matrix bone graft.

Avascular necrosis of hip- New biological treatment options

Stem cell treatment of avascular necrosis.

Stem cell treatment of avascular necrosis.

A novel form of treatment is now available in India for patients with early stage avascular necrosis of the hip. This treatment is based on regenerative medicine.

Avascular necrosis of the hip is a condition of unknown origin affecting many young and middle aged patients. Steroid intake, alcoholism, Sickle cell diseas, hypertension, decompression sickness are some known causes. Moderate to severe disease is treated by hip resurfacing whereas core decompression is offered to the first stage of the disease. Grade II A disease is an intermediary stage between the two extremes and has no definite treatment options. There is controversy on the appropriate treatment. Hip replacement is perhaps too drastic an operation for this early stage of the disease. Core decompression has limited success rate. Left to progress it leads to deterioration and hip arthritis.

For this stage, a biolgoical option is now available. This is based on the potential of stem cells to heal the avascular bone. Stem cells are drawn from the patient and cultured in the lab. A few weeks later, they are injected back into the affected portion of the femoral head along with a core decompression. In a core decompression the surgeon will drill a tunnel in the hip bone leading into the affected area. The regenerative bone cells are injected into the affected area. The bone forming cells called Osteoblasts synthesize new bone in the dead area. This leads to healing and hence a biological cure. The technique is called Ossron

This process is avaiable in India for a reasonable cost.
