Inter trochanteric fractu
My father had a fall, and the initial report through X-ray says Intertrochanteric fracture. He is advised bed rest for 2-3 months. He is staying in Katpadi, Tamil Nadu. I am looking for an orthopedic doctor to visit him( since he can't move) and advise suitably.

Hi, I understand that your father has already been diagnosed to have a trochanteric fracture. These fractures are common in the elderly. If your father is fit for surgery It should be ideally operated on and fixed or replaced with a bipolar cemented ARTHROPLASTY for him to be mobile, with og course a high risk consent. Katpadi being near to CMC Vellore ,I would suggest that you take him there
