Hip Fracture Surgery

Hip fractures are a serious health problem common among elderly men and women who fall. In 2003, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there were approximately 345,000 hospitalizations for hip fractures. Only one in four patients typically recovers completely.

A hip fracture is a break near the top of your thighbone (femur) where it angles into your hip socket. When you break your hip, it usually hurts too much to stand and your leg may turn outward or shorten. Immediate medical attention should be sought. In most instances, hospitalization and surgery are required.
