Hip Fracture

Hip fracture is a break in the upper end of the thigh bone forms the hip joint. It usually occurs in elderly people aged over 65 years either due to a fall or a direct blow to the hip. Certain medical conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer and stress injuries weaken the bone and increase the risk of hip fractures in elderly people. Often, hip fractures require surgical correction and the surgery depends on the part of the upper femur bone affected.
