Orthogeriatric Service (OGS) is a collaborative work between orthopaedic and geriatric medicine department. The main goal is to provide a specialised care to elderly patients who have suffered from a fragility fracture in particular hip fracture or other types of orthopaedic problems. Fragility hip fractures can be particularly devastating for older patients, who may already have co-morbidities that can make recovery more difficult.
The multidisciplinary team, comprised of orthopaedic surgeons, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, geriatricians, physiotherapists, rehabilitation specialists, and occupational therapists, works together to provide patients with the best possible combined care. This collaborative effort aims to minimize surgical risks and support patients in achieving their optimal recovery.
