Stem Cells for Avascular Necrosis

Stem Cells for Avascular Necrosis

Have you been diagnosed with Avascular necrosis of the hip? Does the MRI show early stage like 1 or 2? If so, you could get a cure by stem cells. You can thus avoid a hip replacement.
Avascular necrosis of the hip is a frequently seen condition in young patients. Surgical treatment is most successful. Non operative treatment fails in 80% of cases. In late cases hip replacement is the proved and tested method. I use stem cells in early stages of the disease.
When the disease is detected early by MRI biological treatment with stem cells is possible. Stem cells have the potential to regenerate dead bone. Bone forming stem cells are utilized to synthesize new bone after removal of dead bone by surgery. Stem cells are harvested from the pelvis of the patient.

A single stage procedure uses core decompression and bone marrow derived stem cells. 

In this method, your own Bone marrow concentrate (BMAC)is injected into the area after core decompression.

The following testimonial is that of an overseas patient who underwent stem cell treatment by me.

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.


A paper presented at the recent American academy of surgeons meet in New Orleans highlighted the success story of stem cells.

Stem cells are thus a safe alternative to hip replacement in early Avascular necrosis. I use BMAC in my practice.
