Avascular Necrosis also known as AVN or Osteonecrosis, is death of bone tissues due to lake of blood supply. AVN is a progressive disease which restricts mobility & collapses the affected joint with its progression.
AVN generally affects the Hip Joint of young adults between the age group of 20-45 years. Although the knee, shoulder, ankle & other regions can also be affected from AVN.

Stages I and II of AVN are early stages and symptoms usually start from Stage II.
It is important to diagnose and seek treatment for AVN AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE as it progresses very rapidly.
AVN is reversible when appropriate treatment is sought in its early stages.
In the advance stages, significant bone fractures and cartilage damage renders the joint non-functional. At advance stage the affected joint needs to be replaced by Replacement surgery.
Regrow Bone Cell Therapy consists of using the patients’ own cells (autologous) as a therapeutic tool to cure AVN.
Bone Cell Therapy is a Permanent Treatment of Avascular Necrosis that cease the disease progression & restores the mobility.
Bone Cell Therapy consists of 3 steps i.e. Bone Marrow Extraction, Separation of Bone Cell & their Culture (Expansion) and then finally the implantation of the cultured bone cells.
Natural treatment - uses patients' own cells
Patient resumes active, pain-free & normal life
Eliminates need for highly invasive Total Hip Replacement Surgery
Highly effective & successful treatment of AVN with a long-term follow-up of 10 years.
More than 600 patients have been successfully treated with bone cell therapy.
