I am a 33 year old male and was recently told that I have Stage 1 AVN of the right hip and Stage 4 AVN of the left hip. My DR has suggested bone decompression on the right hip in an effort to save the hip. I do not know anything about this surgery. Can anyone help? What is done during the surgery? Recovery time? What kind of help will I need?

Thanks
