Knee AVN experts and pre-operative treatments : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

Where would one find physicians who have particular expertise in the latest treatment procedures for knee AVN? What are the new/experimental protocols/treatments for knee AVN (both pre-operative and/or surgical) that might be successful in revascularization, pain reduction, or limiting the rate of bone deterioration?
