Pelvic and Hip Fracture Sites

Potential pelvic and hip fracture sites

A hip fracture is a break in the upper thighbone (femur) that forms the hip joint. A pelvic fracture can happen anywhere in the pelvic bone.

Fractures of the hips and pelvis are not often seen in children unless a severe injury (such as a car crash) has occurred.
