Hip fracture (broken hip bone) is common and often occurs after a fall from a standing height. It has devastating consequences, especially in the elderly. Comprehensive, integrated care is essential for faster recovery.
Yishun Health's Hip Fracture Service (HFS) provides holistic care for hip fracture patients above 60 years old, starting from the emergency department (ED), going through acute care services including surgery, post-operative rehabilitation and preventive care.
The service is run by a dedicated and highly professional team, involving orthopaedic surgeons, geriatricians, anaesthetists, ED doctors, cardiologists, nurses, rehabilitation staff (physio-, occupational and speech therapists), dietitians, case managers and operations administration across both Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) and Yishun Community Hospital (YCH).
