How Stem Cell Therapy Can Treat Avascular Necrosis Of The Hip?

Stem cell therapy is a breakthrough solution for chronic ailments, including orthopedic conditions and musculoskeletal problems. Regenerative medicine is revolutionizing treatments and proves to be a safe and minimally invasive option compared to traditional approaches, such as medications and surgeries.

Avascular Necrosis is a debilitating orthopedic condition that poses significant challenges to nearly 20,000 Americans every year. Stem cell treatment has shown promising results in relieving this progressive condition. It has been a game-changer for many as it directly addresses avascular necrosis lesions, preventing hip replacement surgeries.

What is Avascular Necrosis (AVN)?

Avascular Necrosis or Osteonecrosis is a condition that causes bone tissues to die due to a lack of blood flow. It usually results from trauma or excessive fat deposits in weight-bearing joints, such as hips and knees. If left untreated, the consequences can be severe, leading to fractures, joint collapse, persistent pain, and limited mobility.

Osteonecrosis progresses when the bone cells in the joints (osteoblasts) cannot repair themselves due to decreased blood flow to the bones, start deteriorating, and eventually die.


Symptoms of Avascular Necrosis of the Hip

The early stages of Avascular Necrosis are mostly symptom-free, but with time, the affected joints in the hip start hurting when excessive pressure or weight is applied. Due to AVN, the skeletal structure in the portion below the hips, i.e., the upper leg, weakens, and the ball portion of the hip and joint socket collapses.

Other common symptoms of AVN noticeable in patients in later stages are:

  • Persistent pain in the hips, buttocks, thighs, and knees
  • Stiffness in the joints
  • Limited mobility or range of motion
  • Difficulty walking, bending, climbing, or standing

Traditional Treatment Approaches for Avascular Necrosis of the Hip

Although no medical treatment has proven effective for arresting or preventing AVN, conservative and non-surgical options may improve the symptoms and provide relief. However, medical management and treatments depend on the location of the AVN, the condition severity, the patient’s age, and overall health.

Non-surgical treatments include physiotherapy, pain-relief medicines, crutches, walkers, rest, reduced weight bearing, and electrical stimulation. Surgical procedures are the only option when these options fail to provide relief. Surgical treatments include total hip replacement, core decompression, bone graft, and total hip arthroplasty.

How Stem Cell Therapy Can Relieve Pain from Avascular Necrosis?

In exploring alternative treatment avenues to AVN, stem cell therapy is getting much attention because of its high differentiation and regenerative potential. Moreover, it prevents the need for complicated, painful, and invasive hip replacement surgery, which has a lengthy recovery period.

In the last few years, medical science has experienced a considerable shift in Avascular Necrosis treatment as stem cell therapy emerged as a promising treatment approach. Mesenchymal stem cells can reverse the damage by replacing bone cells in the affected hip joints with healthy cells and reducing pain and inflammation.

The five most important factors that make stem cell therapy stand out as a suitable treatment option for many are:

  • Tissue regeneration – When stem cells are injected into the affected joints, they differentiate into osteoblasts (bone cells) and promote tissue regeneration. They replace the dead cells and repair the damaged ones, promoting functional recovery of the hip joints.
  • Targeted PrecisionStem cell therapy for hip pain due to AVN provides a targeted precision approach to cell delivery. Doctors inject healthy and concentrated stem cells into the injured site to accelerate the regenerative and reparative process. The strategy focuses directly on the damaged or dead bone tissues and eliminates chances of collateral damage to the surrounding environment.
  • Lower Risks – Surgical interventions for AVN, such as hip replacement, are inherently complicated and carry many risks. However, stem cell therapy is minimally invasive. Stem cells are harvested from the patient’s body or umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells, reducing the chances of cell rejection or post-therapy complications.
  • Holistic Healing – In addition to effectively addressing pain and other debilitating symptoms of AVN, stem cell treatments stimulate the body’s innate regenerative potential and promote holistic healing. The newly introduced stem cells target the root cause of the AVN, supporting sustainable relief and recovery.
  • Quick recovery – The recovery period for stem cell therapy is significantly shorter than that for surgical interventions, and patients can usually leave the hospital on the same day and return to work within two to three days with a restricted range of motion in the affected joints.

Stem cell therapy offers a lasting and comprehensive treatment solution compared to surgical or traditional alternatives. Also, the targeted stem cell administration maximizes the effectiveness of the treatment.

Final Thoughts

Stem cell therapy has emerged as a pathbreaking solution for treating Avascular Necrosis. This noninvasive treatment intervention has given millions hope to combat this progressive condition and lead healthier lives. Cellular healing in AVN ensures patients regain their ability to walk, stand, and lean without any difficulty or discomfort. There is a significant reduction in pain, swelling, and stiffness in the affected joints.

The remarkable potential of stem cell treatments in the regeneration of bone cells in the avascular area of the hip bone improves function, reducing the need for hip replacement surgery.
