Hip Fracture Img

Hip Fracture

The hip joint is a “ball and socket” joint. The “ball” is the head of the femur or thighbone, and the “socket” is the cup-shaped acetabulum. The joint surface is covered by a smooth articular surface that allows pain-free movement in the joint.

Subtrochanteric Hip Fracture Img

Subtrochanteric Hip Fracture

A hip fracture is a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thighbone. The thighbone has two bony processes on the upper part - the greater and lesser trochanters.

Intertrochanteric Fracture Img

Intertrochanteric Fracture

A fracture is defined as a break in the continuity of the bone when a force against your body is too strong for the bone to bear. Intertrochanteric fracture is a break in the proximal femur, between the greater trochanter and the lesser trochanter.

Femoral Neck Fracture Img

Femoral Neck Fracture

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint made up of the head of the thigh bone or femur that acts as the ball and fits into the rounded socket of the hip bone or acetabulum. The neck of the femur is the region just below the ball of the hip joint.

Proximal Femoral Fracture Img

Proximal Femoral Fracture

A proximal femoral fracture also known as a hip fracture is a condition characterized by a break or fracture in the upper part of the femur or thighbone in close proximity to the hip socket

Acetabular Fracture Img

Acetabular Fracture

An acetabular fracture is a break in the acetabulum (ball-and-socket portion) of the hip joint. It usually occurs during high-energy injuries.

Hip Fracture Surgery Img

Hip Fracture Surgery

Surgical correction of a hip fracture is known as hip fracture surgery. Hip fractures involve a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thigh bone.
