  With the increased longevity and increasing geriatric population , hip fractures have increased in numbers and with the present generation of implants , surgeons  are able to provide excellent quality of life hip surgeries hitherto unavailable just a decade ago.We at orthoone orthopedic and joint replacement center are able to provide surgeries for patients with hip fractures, hip arthritis and redo hip surgeries  options which gives them an excellent quality of life and good results in patients with advanced age and multiple health problems (diabetes, HT , advanced age, neuro problems and liver cardiac and kidney diseases ).

The older concepts of cementing has been turned on its head by the present generation of highly refined and highly indivisualized / modular hip implant .
they provide superior fit minimalizing the risks , tissue trauma  and time in cemented implant.

WE PRESENT A COMPLICATED CASE  -

SUBCAPITAL FRACTURE NECK
 
 
what we did-
 
 
PROXIMALLY COATED UNCEMENTED STEM
 
 
 
 
 
 
BIPOLAR HEAD - BEFORE IMPLANTATION
 
 
 
 
 
 
STEM AFTER IMPLANTATION

POST OPERATIVE X RAY
 
WHAT  AND WHY WE DID
we chose an uncemented component due to the excellent stems now available and minimal morbidity to patient , less operative time , less tissue trauma  and to lessen cardiac complications in very old patients where surgery is a stress and risky.
 
 
we performed a right sided iliopsoas and adductor release(bilateral) and got very good correction of contractures and his hips which were flexed and adducted prooperatively were abducted and he can now walk comfortably with walker.
 
POST SURGERY -PATIENT STANDING ON DAY 1- walked few steps with walker
