I was diagnosed with bilateral AVN of the hips in 1997.I have had bilaterl core decompression and ultimately a VFG of the left hip. After the VFG I had pain in my left knee. The doctor's at stanford thought it was the result of muscle atrophy from the surgery. Two weeks ago it was determined that I have AVN of the left knee. I will probably get an MRI of the right one too, since it has been painful.

Does anyone have any experience with treatment of AVN of the knees?
