Tips to Prevent Hip Fractures for Seniors

A hip fracture is one of the most common and disabling types of orthopedic injuries in the United States, especially for senior citizens.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least a quarter million people, 65 or older, are hospitalized for hip fractures every year and women break their hips more often than men — roughly 3 to 1. So we recommend the following 10 tips to avoid injury and fractures:

1. Exercise
2. Make Your Home Safer with Padding
3. Schedule Periodic Health Checks
4. Keeping floors clear of clutter,remove objects in path
5. Improve visibility in rooms and hallways by adding more lights
6. To prevent bathroom falls, install grab bars or handles inside and outside of your tub or shower

Generation Y & Health Care

The healthcare workforce has grown considerably with the addition of a new group of physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals who belong to America’s youngest generation in the workforce-generation Y, or the Millennials.  With 70 million people, the oldest of whom are now in their late 20’s and early 30’s, are positioned to drastically change current approaches to healthcare.

Millennials, more than any other group, look for convenient ways to get things done.  For example,  they are more likely to look for doctors and health care facilities online and they prefer to make appointments and pay their bills online .  This ‘online dependency’ directly influences how they work too and how they analyse data.  Overall, this young generation of doctors is expected to change the medical industry in big ways and they’ve already outnumbered America’s oldest generation, the baby-boomers.

All New look for LAOSS Center & Team

Welcome to the New LAOSS Orthopaedic Clinic @ White Memorial Medical Center!

Up for a national award, LAOSS Orthopaedic Clinic is now serving Pasadena, Whittier, Hollywood, Calabasas & Topanga Canyon.

The Los Angeles Orthopaedic Surgery Specialists medical clinic, which has undergone an expansion and interior design upgrade, is up for a national award because of 6 wall murals decorating its halls and waiting area.  Winning 2017 Best of Class at the PIASC Print Awards, the clinic also expanded its square footage space for a staff of 18 professionals.

The murals are photographs of Los Angeles’ city scapes, namely, the First Street, Fourth Street, Sixth Street (under reconstruction) and Seventh Street Bridges connecting Downtown to the Eastside, in Boyle Heights.  The clinic is part of the White Memorial Medical Center complex, but is an independent clinic known for its orthopaedic surgeries and arthroscopy procedures.

Headed by Dr. Kevin J. Pelton, the clinic can be reached at (323) 264-7600 or via email at info@laorthos.net.
