Your surgeon should explain which type of surgery is most appropriate for your type of hip fracture.
If your patient has a displaced intracapsular fracture, they should almost always receive arthroplasty (total arthroplasty or hemiarthroplasty). In rare cases of younger and very active patients, you may consider reduction and fixation to preserve the hip joint.
For Health Services
Ensure that surgeons have access to all resources necessary to perform appropriately selected procedures.
