USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Core Decompression Procedure for the Hip

This procedure, used to treat osteonecrosis, involves creating a channel or core tract to relieve pressure and allow blood vessels to nourish the damaged areas of the hip. This procedure may be combined with some type of bone grafting at the femoral head. If osteonecrosis is treated early, this procedure can prevent the bone from total collapse and the patient from developing arthritis.
