Femoral neck fracture in geriatric patients and the need for rehabilitation after hemiarthroplasty

Nikolay Kolarov


Hemiarthroplasty for femoral neck fracture in geriatric patients is a problem of great social importance. When carrying out the treatment after such trauma, medical, structural, technical and rehabilitation tasks are included. The goal of postoperative behavior is to achieve rapid adaptation of patients to self-care and restoration of hygiene and household habits, and their return to their social environment in their new biological state.
