Scott, I saw a documentary of this on the Discovery channel ,I spoke to my ortho regarding this and he didn't seem impressed at all. Firstly, you will lose the use of your fibia,which will mean that more stress is placed on your tibia. Secondly, it may prevent further AVN, but it will not reverse the damage that has already been done,which means that eventually you will still require a THR.
