Re: Avascular Necrosis of Sesamoid

Avascular necrosis is a rare occurence. When it happens, certainly there is a great deal of concern on both the patient's part and the doctor. We don't know why it happens. As far as the sesamoid being removed. That is usually what is done if there is pain. You did not say which sesamoid, medial or lateral. Each one has different concerns. I can not answer your questions regarding the surgery as I do not have all the necessary information. Certainly, your doctor is the best person to ask these questions. Write them down and ask for further information.

Good luck.
