What Is a Knee Fracture?

Description of the condition

A knee fracture is a damage to the bones of the thigh, which usually occurs as a result of trauma or a strong blow. This is a serious condition that requires medical intervention.


  • Fracture of the femoral neck
  • Fracture of the femoral head
  • Fracture in the intratrochanteric region


  • Severe pain in the thigh area
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Inability to stand or walk


A knee fracture most often occurs as a result of a fall, accident, or sports injury. People with osteoporosis are at an increased risk of fracture.


X-ray or MRI is used to diagnose a knee fracture.


Depending on the nature of the fracture, treatment may include wearing a cast, rehabilitation, or surgical intervention.


To prevent fractures, it is recommended to engage in sports, strengthen bones, and avoid risky situations.


A traumatologist-orthopedist treats knee fractures.
