bone graft question : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I was diagnosed with stage III osteonecrosis in the right knee. The lower part of my femur has started to collapse on the lateral side. A doctor cutting out all the dead bone and replacing with an allograft. Is this possible? I can't find any information pertaining to this procedure on the web. The closest thing I found was a similar procedure done on the hip. Nothing on the knee. Can someone shed some light on this?
