My dad had an accident in 1993 and got his right leg operated. Doctors stated that “there is a complete posture-superior dislocation of the right head of femur. This has resulted in visualisation of parts of the head posterior to the iliac bone at super-acetabular levels. Part of head of femur is also fractured and the bony fragment lies towards the acetabular cavity.” It was all going but now ,since 3-4 years he is facing problem in walking, he has started limping and suffer pain while walking. I want to know that if there is any treatment or operation which can help him to be back to normal? Note: He is suffering from Diabetes, Blood pressure He have had a heart attack 6 years ago.
