Jan 23, 2016 · Core Decompression Surgery in Bones, Joints & Muscles

We are doing this to prolong a full hip replacement. My doctor said the AVN was not there when we did surgery in June to reattach the hamstring muscle to the bone,and he had to reshape the hip joint so it would function better as it was not round like it should be and was probably that was when I was born. I haven’t had the surgery yet but the MRI clearly showed where the bone was cutting off blood flow. I opted to do the surgery because my dDr said even at 53 I was to young to do a total hip replacement so we are trying to hold off as long as possible. He did tell me that hip replacement surgery is the easiest surgery to recover from as well as AVN.

Jan 20, 2016 · Ruptured disks (C5-6 and C6-7) and am in constant pain in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Gator jaws
I have had the infusion done on all of the discs u mentioned. I had surgery in June of 08. My Dr..is Dr. Paul Canale of Alabama spinal institute. I have a plate and 6 screws holding everything into place. I have had no problems since then,but I will say my Dr. Went ahead and did a fusion on C-6&7 as a precautionary method because he knew those discs would be next. I HAVENT experienced any pain at all. Unless you have a severe underlying problem I would definitely seek a second opinion to clear the air once and for all. Mr Dr.Paul Canale is the best in the U.S. He is in Daphne Alabama. Hope this helps you.

Has anyone on here had a surgery for a vascular necrosis? If so was a core decompression surgery done or a total hip replacement surgery done?
