Dr. Abhay Chhallani, with his unmatched expertise in hip fracture management, is your trusted partner in this journey towards recovery.

Understanding Hip Fractures:

A hip fracture occurs in the upper part of the femur, the thigh bone, often near the hip joint. The hip joint consists of the ‘ball’ (the head of the femur) and the ‘socket’ (the acetabulum). It’s a joint with a smooth articular surface, designed to allow pain-free movement. However, when a fracture occurs, it can be a life-altering event.

Signs and Symptoms:

Hip fractures come with a set of painful signs and symptoms, such as:

  • Pain: You’ll experience severe pain in the groin or outer upper thigh.
  • Swelling and Tenderness: Swelling and tenderness around the hip area are common.
  • Discomfort with Movement: You may find it difficult to rotate the hip.
  • Altered Leg Position: The injured leg might turn outward or inward at the foot and knee.

Diagnosis and Classification:

Diagnosing a hip fracture typically involves X-rays. In some cases, more advanced imaging methods like MRI are used for a detailed assessment. Depending on the specific location of the fracture on the upper femur, hip fractures are classified into three types:

  • Intracapsular Fracture
  • Intertrochanteric Fracture
  • Subtrochanteric Fracture

Treatment Options:

Dr. Abhay Chhallani offers a comprehensive range of treatment options for hip fractures:

  • Traction: In cases where surgery is not an immediate option, traction can be used to stabilise the fracture.
  • Surgical Interventions: Hip fractures are often treated surgically, typically involving internal fixation or hemiarthroplasty/total hip replacement. The choice of surgery depends on the type and location of the fracture.
