Fractures/Trauma

Dr. Nizam also specializes in Fracture Fixation and Trauma surgery.

Hip Fractures

Depending on the level of the fracture at the hip, patients may end up having partial hip replacement, Total hip replacement or Fracture fixation with plate and screws or Intramedullary Nailing.

Total Hip Replacement in Fracture hips in older patients are recommended if they are independent, living at home and generally well in themselves. Dr. Nizam usually mobilizes these patients few hours after surgery with the Enhanced Recovery Program.
