The orthopedic surgeons at Orthopedics and Joint Replacement at Mercy work with patients to diagnose and provide treatment options for hip fractures.
A fracture of the hip occurs at the upper most portion of the femur (thighbone). Hip fractures are most common in people over the age of 65 who have experienced a fall. Other factors that can increase a person’s chance of a hip fracture are, osteoporosis, lack of exercise, not getting enough calcium or Vitamin D, being underweight, and excessive drinking or smoking. Hip fractures also occur as a result of a serious injury, such as a car crash or falling from a great height.
The most common signs of hip fracture are:
After a physical exam of the hip, an X-ray is the most common method to diagnose a hip fracture. However, if the fracture is small or hard to see, a doctor may recommend an MRI or CT scan to get a better view.
Treatment for hip fracture may depend on several factors:
Most hip fracture patients will need hip surgery to repair the bone. Pins, rods, screws or plates are often used to repair the hip during surgery. In severe cases, a doctor might recommend partial or total hip replacement.
Physical therapy is often prescribed as part of the recovery process to improve range of motion and overall health of the hip.
