Hello There..
welcome to Healthcare Magic forum..
Main modality of treatment for avascular necrosis is Bone replacement surgery..The most common site involved is femoral head so usually hip replacement surgery is performed.
NSAIDS are used to reduce the pain and Bisphosphonates are used to slow the disease process.. Vitamin D and calcium can be used to prevent the disease as both of them are required for healthy growing of bones..
Hope this helps
Take care!!
