Please share your experience with doctors and with your permission I will post their information and quote that the information came from you. As a community we need to work together and spread our knowledge!
Surgery is not an option for me, so I am only going to post other doctors who you have worked with, had positive results with and who you would recommend.

Thomas A. Einhorn, M.D., Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Biochemistry and Biomedical Engineering at Boston University
When I was first on my quest to find help I was told about Dr. Einhorn and the stem cell surgery he was doing for Osteonecrosis (Avascular Necrosis) patients. I sent Dr. Einhorn my discs, he was very gracious and reviewed them and called me back. Unfortunately for me my disease was in multiple patches and I wasn’t a candidate for stem cell surgery. However, I know he has had a lot of success with many ON (AVN) patients and I highly recommend contacting him.

Joseph M. Lane MD., Chief of the Metabolic Bone Disease Service at Hospital for Special Surgery
Specalizes in metabolic bone diseases. Dr. Lane has published several clinical papers on bone biology, tissue injury and repair, trauma, bone and soft tissue sarcomas, limb preservation, functional amputations, limb regeneration, and metabolic bone diseases (osteoporosis, Paget’s disease, rickets, osteomalacia, fibrous dysplasia).
Quote from AVN sufferer about Dr. Lane: “If you are looking for stem cells, Dr. Joseph Lane at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York should be considered….I did have to wait 3 months to see him. Before one sees him he sends a prescription for a complete blood count, plus calcium and vitamin D situation… He spent time with me which is unusual. He gave me a percentage of the size of lesions in my hips which is totally unusual. He uses Forteo (bone building drug) with Fosamax for his patients he also does stem cells.”
