Geriatric Fracture Program

Geriatric Fracture Program


For the aging population, a broken hip can be a life-changing event; one that often leads to loss of independence and other serious consequences.

The Geriatric Fracture Program at LG Health Orthopedic Center is improving that picture by standardizing and streamlining hospital care and collaborating with nursing and rehab facilities that receive our patients after discharge.

Benefits to our patients include:

  • Streamlined process and faster time to surgery, reducing the risk of complications and expediting recovery
  • Enhanced pain management
  • Education about bone health and screening for osteoporosis—a condition causing more than 2 million fractures each year
  • Fall prevention training

Our Geriatric Fracture program is the 13th in the world and 11th in U.S. to achieve Premier Certification from the International Geriatric Fracture Society—the highest possible level for geriatric fracture care programs.
