Definition: During an impact, as a result of a fall, the upper end of the femur is fractured. Usually the fracture occurs in the femoral neck or trochanter.

Treatment: In most cases, patients who suffer from a hip fracture are operated as soon as possible and the fractured bone is replaced with a prosthesis.

Convalescence: Rehabilitation must be carried out quickly after the operation, for a period of 3 months to 1 year. The patient must regain mobility as soon as possible for a better recovery.

Affected People: The majority of hip fractures concerns the elderly, especially women (75%) because of osteoporosis, which makes their bones more fragile.
