Looking for Specialist in AVN on West Coastgreenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread
I had core decompression on June 5 and my pain has not subsided. Although I respect and have confidence in my surgeon, I would like to find a physician who specializes or has a special interest in AVN on the West Coast. I live in San Francisco.

The following website has a list of physician members in the National Osteonecrosis Foundation.
I hope this helps.

I found something as well from one of my links about the top hospitals for Orthopedists.
I too live in the Bay Area and UCSF and Stanford were up there.
Here's a link to an AVN support website but has lots of other stuff on it too!

I just visited a surgeon at UCLA medical center and was very pleased and confident in his abilities. This division of UCLA is dedicated to AVN or Osteonecrosis. I will be opting for replacement surgery in right hip. I felt very comfortable after speaking with Dr Jay Lieberman, he is the 3rd surgeon I interviewed.
