Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Hip joint is the major joint commonly affected by AVN. It may affect the shoulder joint, wrist joint , knee joints etc.

Treatments are based on various factors which includes the patient’s age, the amount and location of bone that the condition affects, the underlying cause of the problem and the stage of the disease.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
