Dr. Lox is considered as having special expertise in the area of AVN or Osteonecrosis.

The ischemia or lack of blood flow in AVN leads to bone cell death or necrosis. Hence the term avascular necrosis, abbreviated AVN, osteonecrosis, aseptic necrosis or ischemic necrosis. Bone infarction has also been used. All these terms are the same disorder, just different names. To confuse it more there may be other names used to describe a particular bone that has AVN, usually named after an early physician or Radiologist who first described the changes noted in the bone on early x-rays, way before MRI’s existed, often over a century ago.

AVN and Sports

Bo Jackson was a professional Football and Baseball player of legendary status. He was faster, stronger and could do things other great players couldn’t. He still holds the unofficial 40 yard combine dash in the NFL at 4.12 seconds. Incredible for a big strong 225 pound running back. In baseball, a fly ball going long in the outfield he would leap for the catch. Normally in this situation if the outfield wall was in the way you jumped and crashed into the wall. Not Bo Jackson, he ran up the wall, turned dropped and would laser throw the ball from the outfield to home plate. If he struck out and did not hit a homer, he would break the bat over his thigh like a match stick. Normal big good players do not do that. Bo Jackson unfortunately developed hip AVN after a traumatic tackle in a football playoff game, injuring his hip. The hip AVN was not immediately diagnosed, and his hip did the most feared complication of AVN, an accelerated rapid joint degeneration occurred destroying his hip joint.
