Pelvic and Acetabular Fractures

A hip fracture is a break in the femur (thigh bone) of the hip joint. The hip joint is a "ball and socket" joint where the femur meets the pelvic bone. The ball part of the hip joint is the head of the femur, and the socket is a cup-like structure in the pelvic bone called the acetabulum. Hip fracture is a serious injury and requires immediate medical attention.

Multiple Injuries

Our surgeons use advanced surgical techniques to treat patients with impairments or disabilities due to disease, disorders, or trauma to the muscles or bones.

Open and Closed Fractures/Dislocations of the Extremities

A fracture is a partial or complete break in the bone. When a fracture occurs, it is classified as either open or closed:

  • Open fracture (also called compound fracture): The bone exits and is visible through the skin, or a deep wound that exposes the bone through the skin.
  • Closed fracture (also called simple fracture): The bone is broken, but the skin is intact.

Articular cartilage can sometimes be confusing, because there are three different types of cartilage found in the body: articular or hyaline cartilage (covers joint surfaces), fibrocartilage (knee meniscus, vertebral disk), and elastic cartilage (outer ear).

These different cartilages are distinguished by their structure, elasticity, and strength.
