[Geriatrician and orthopedist : happy wedding ?]
Rev Med Suisse 2019; 15(670):2021-2026RM

Abstract

Proximal femur fractures in the elderly are still a major event in the functional trajectory of patients. In order to optimize their care, a pilot orthogeriatric unit was created in 2018 at the Valais Hospital. This innovative unit, managed by the internist-geriatrician within the orthopedic department, allows the early and standardized management of geriatric syndromes and postoperative complications. This article describes the practical operation of the unit, presents the preliminary results, and develops suggestions for improvement.
