USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Vascularized Fibula Graft Procedure for the Hip

Vascularized fibula graft procedure for the hip treats osteonecrosis by removing a part of a bone (fibula) in the lower leg, artery and vein, and transplanting them into a hole created in the femoral head. Reattaching the artery and vein brings new blood flow to the affected area.

This procedure may be used when nonsurgical options are exhausted and osteonecrosis has set in.
