What are the benefits of a hip replacement for a femoral neck fracture?
Since the goal of doctors is always to return people to their previous level of function before their injury, the treatment choice for a femoral neck fracture is a total hip replacement. It tends to have the lowest re-operation rate and the least amount of pain associated with it postoperatively. The rewards or the outcomes associated with a hip replacement for a femoral neck fracture in the right person far outweigh the risks associated with performing the procedure.
How is a hand fracture diagnosed?
Rachel Rohde, MD, Orthopedic Surgery, answeredSwelling, bruising, tenderness, pain, or changes in motion after an injury to the hand are suspicious for a fracture; Xrays will help your hand doctor diagnose and plan your treatment with you.
