Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head is a progressive disease characterized by a vascular insult to the blood supply of the femoral head, which can lead to collapse of the femoral head and subsequent degenerative changes. The femoral head, carpals, humerus are the most commonly affected bones. Regenerative medicine - a branch of translational research, uses cell based therapies in tissue engineering which deals with the process of re-engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs at the defective sites to restore or establish normal function. On the basis of the concept of regenerating cells we present a case that deals with the treatment of avascular necrosis of femoral head in a 35 year old male patient with cell based therapy.
