My mother is suffering from a left femoral neck fracture. Is there any other treatment other than surgery? Please suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The age of the patient is 72 years. At this age and with this fracture, there is more harm in not doing surgery as compared to doing surgery. Such patients can develop respiratory difficulties, bed sore, and infection due to immobilization. Hemiarthroplasty is a good option at this age, but in some conditions, a total hip replacement would be ideal. But it is decided after seeing the patient.
