National Osteonecrosis Foundation
Good Samaritan Professional Building
5601 Loch Raven Blvd., Suite 201
Baltimore, MD 21239
The goal of the National Osteonecrosis Foundation is to act as a conduit for funding for medical research and the education of patients, as well as physicians and other health professionals. To all participating physicians and patients, it offers routine informational updates. It also acts as a referral service for patients wanting to identify physicians in their state with an interest in osteonecrosis, a bone disorder that decreases the blood supply to the affected area, leading to tiny breaks within the bone. The foundation provides educational materials about osteonecrosis, the destruction of bone that may occur as a result of bone injury or in conjunction with other diseases and conditions, and its various forms, such as Leg-Calve-Perthes disease, a type of osteonecrosis of the hip that is found only in children.
