Neck of Femur Fracture

Neck of femur fractures are typically caused either by low energy injuries (the most common type), such as a fall in frail older patient, or high energy injuries, such as a road traffic collision or fall from height and are often associated with other significant injuries.

In this active elderly patient, we decided to treat her with bipolar hemiarthroplasty. This will allow her to immediately ambulate the day after surgery with the aid of a walking frame.
