age social persons social

Hip fractures, particularly in frail elderly persons, have a profound effect on morbidity, mortality, and length of hospitalization, and they are a significant risk factor for institutionalization. With the age of the world's population ever increasing, hip fractures will constitute an increasingly large health, social and economic burden. A coordinated multidisciplinary approach, including orthopaedic surgeons, geriatricians, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and social workers will be required to provide optimal management of persons who suffer hip fractures.

I had my neck fused last Oct, 2009.
The Dr took a piece of bone from my left hip. A couple weeks ago my hip started to hurt, I called the Dr. was told to get an xray. I did the next day. I was told by the Dr.'s office hip fractures are very common after bone harvesting. They are telling me that either it is fractured or a piece has broken off. I am in very much pain standing, walking, or moving. Is this true fractures happen all the time, and is there any recourse.
Thanks Linda Stoddard
