Can you treat all broken hips with the Gannet?

No, the Gannet is used specifically for the surgical treatment of hip fractures in which the fracture is located just below the femoral head, in the neck of the hip. Furthermore, the Gannet is only used in patients who have previously walked unaided. Patients above 75 years commonly have a treatment by replacing the broken hip with a new hip (head neck prosthesis or a total hip replacement).
