Pelvic and Acetabular Fractures – Hip Replacement Surgery


Fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum are among the most serious injuries treated by the orthopaedic surgeons.

Often the result of a traumatic incident such as a motor vehicle accident or a bad fall, these fractures require rapid and precise treatment and in some cases one or more surgical procedures. People of all ages are vulnerable to these injuries.

Pelvice Fractures :

A pelvic fracture is a break in one or more bones of the pelvis. The pelvis is a butterfly-shaped group of bones located at the base of the spine.

Acetabular Fractures :

Acetabular fracture is a very serious hip injury, pelvic fractures can be suprapubic, ischium, and the affected hip acetabular fracture, and can also be hip dislocation caused by the Centre.

A new technique of direct angled CT scanning of pelvic and acetabular fractures is presented that allows visualization of the entire ring on a single image or two adjacent images.

Treatment for the patients with pelvic fractures is based on a number of factors including the stability of the pelvis and the degree of displacement of the bones. Realignment of the bones may be done either as an open reduction in which the orthopaedic surgeon makes an incision to directly manipulate the bone or as a closed reduction in which this incision is not necessary. Patients with pelvic fractures may require one or more surgical procedures. The surgeon may begin with an External Fixation (Ex-Fix) technique in which an open or closed reduction is performed and the bones are then held in place using an external fixator or frame.

Patients with acetabular fractures often require an Open Reduction with Internal Fixation (ORIF) especially those patients who also have displaced of the joint.

Some hospitals are provided best medical facilities & world class treatment by internationally certified Surgeons at effective cost. Quality of medical infrastructure of the hospitals is world class.
