Tampa, Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, Fl

Ischemic necrosis or avascular necrosis (AVN) occurs when the blood supply to a region of bone is disrupted, and then the bone dies or becomes necrotic. This may result from trauma such as a sports injury or medical disorders.
Avascular necrosis (AVN) can occur in most any joint, but is more commonly seen in the hips, shoulders, and knees.
