I’m wondering are all hip fractures the same? I heard that there are few types of hip fracture. I want to know that because my grandmother has hip fracture. She is in hospital now waiting for surgery. Please, does anybody know something more about this topic? Explain to me types of hip fracture. Thanks!

As I know, there are two types of fractures: Femoral neck fractures and Intertrochanteric hip fractures. A femoral neck fracture occurs when the ball of the ball-and-socket hip joint is fractured off the femur. An intertrochanteric hip fracture occurs just below the femoral neck. These fractures are amenable to repair more often than femoral neck fractures.
