What is the average healing time for broken femur?

3-4 months. It typically takes 3-4 months in adults for femur shaft fracture to consolidate. However neck & distal femur heal in half the time. Children also take half the time.
4 Months. The healing time for a femur fracture is variable. The type of fracture, as well as its location and possibly type of surgery come into play. Also, smoking has a negative affect on all types of bone healing. In long bone fractures, up to 8 months can still be within normal. Best of luck.
