How to Treat Hip Fracture?


Medical Treatment:
  • Thinning of bone or osteoporosis if present will also need treatment.
  • Depends on fracture type and fitness, different surgeries are available.
  • Internal fixation for outside socket fracture or not much displacement.
  • Femoral head prosthesis for inside socket fractures.
  • Complete hip replacement is major surgery and considered if you have associated arthritis.
  • Not doing anything will slow recovery and may make people worse. However, long term bed rest is the option in unfit patients.
