Avascular necrosis of hip joint has emerged as one of the most disabling conditions of present era of Orthopedics. It poses a challenge in front of the medical fraternity due to non-availability of accurate management for this condition. Surgery offers hip joint replacement that is not so commonly available and expensive too. Ayurveda can provide a suitable answer through appropriate Panchakarma modalities useful in Asthi dhatu kshaya. A diagnosed case of Avascular necrosis with complaints of pain at bilateral hip joint and restricted movements approached the out-patient division of the hospital and was managed by Udwartana, Virechana and Tikta ksheera vasti by following classical principles of Ayurveda. Significant improvement was noticed after the treatment. Pain was reduced significantly and the patient was able to walk and climb stairs at the end of the treatment. Results obtained were encouraging and restricted disease progression was observed.
