Learning Lab Information

Join us for a 15-minute session with Dr. Samir Mehta, a leading orthopedic trauma specialist, as he reviews cases with a new treatment option for patients who sustain FFP. There are roughly 150,000 fragility Fractures of the pelvis (FFP) per year in the US. Most patients today receive conservative care for FFP, including bed rest, pain medication, and mobility assistance. Often, patients experience a worsening of symptoms leading to lengthy hospitalizations, loss of independence, high nursing home admittance, and high rate of mortality. Overwhelming clinical evidence suggests that more patients could benefit from surgical care than receive it today.
