Crack in ribcage 3rd-8th

My uncle has slipped 4stairs and fallen down on 8th march, then had 12 stitches at the head area and 5 bones have broken in the right side rib cage area and a hairlike crack in the right pelvis. So please suggest me what treatments are to be given to him and what type of exercises are to be given. He also have a problem of prostate and hydrocele from past few years.
