The orthopedic team at Mount Sinai Queens is highly trained and experienced in repairing hip fractures, which is a very common occurrence, particularly among older people. Our skilled doctors assess the type of break and take into account the patient’s age and overall health before determining the most effective type of surgery that will lead to the best possible long-term outcome for each patient.
Depending on the case, our surgical team performs different types of open and minimally invasive surgeries to repair fractured hips. The goal is to minimize health problems and reduced quality of life that can often result from hip fractures. Our surgeons have been successful with the minimally invasive Gotfried percutaneous compression plate (PCCP) procedure which is effective for certain types of hip fractures. It involves minimized trauma and blood loss, decreased post-operative pain, less frequent complications, and often a return to pre-fracture independent mobility.
Our team of doctors, physician assistants, nurses, and therapists work collaboratively to minimize patients’ pain, shorten recovering times, and achieve the best possible long-term outcomes.
