Parkinson's disease patients are at increased risk of falls and osteoporosis. They present a challenge to those who treat them for fracture neck of femur. There are conflicting views as to whether they have a worse prognosis, compared to age matched controls. This review discusses their care, including surgical approach and technique, to post-operative management and complications. It highlights the limitations in evidence and the need for further research.
