Depends: This depends on many factors including the pre/postoperatve health of the patient, the type of fracture, and the type of fixation. Often healthy patients with stable fixation can go home with outpatient pt a few days a week. More deconditioned patients or those with more difficult fractures may even require inpatient rehab for a while.See 1 more doctor answer
Functional status?: One needs to look at the whole person and weigh the risks and benefits for a procedure. If the perosn has been funcitonal and healthy, then there should be no reason to deny a procedure that will add quality to their life. However if the person is limitted functionally and cogntively, the recivery and potential benefit may not be worth the risk.See 1 more doctor answer
7 METS: There is no set limit for heart function reserve, but we generally like patients to have no active heart disease within the last 6 months and be able to exert themselves to a level of 7 metabolic equivalents. If you cannot or haven't done exercise to this level then additional testing may be necessary. Before surgery you will have a comprehensive eval to make sure that you are a good candidate.See 1 more doctor answer

Have torn hamstring from physical therapy after broken hip. I'm recovering well from hip fracture but afraid to go back to same physical therapy.
Hip strengthening: Depending on when the fracture occurred and whether its completely healed or not, you would still benefit from some hip and pelvic girdle strengthening. If you are not comfortable with the current PT, you can do home exercises and find another therapist. But it will be imperative that the muscles around the hip joint (flexors, extensors, and abductors) are strengthened.
Usually surgery: Hip fractures usually refer to proximal femur fractures near the hip joint. Most of these fractures are treated surgically with fixation or a hip replacement unless the patient is too medically unstable for surgery.
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
