Cataract Surgery Reduces Hip Fractures

There’s good news for cataract surgery patients: If you’ve had cataract surgery, your risk of hip fracture is significantly lower following cataract removal.

In a U.S. study of 1.1 million Medicare patients 65 years and older, researchers found people who had cataract surgery had a 16 percent less risk of hip fracture one year after the procedure compared to those who didn’t have surgery.

Hip and other fractures among the elderly are a major health concern, and poor vision is a leading cause of fall-related injuries, disabilities, and even death.

The results of this study show that the benefits of cataract surgery go far beyond helping people see more clearly in everyday activities – cataract surgery also lowers the risk of potentially disabling fractures in the elderly.

The study was reported in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association).

Dr. Maverick has a rocket named after him, Maverick rocket made by Alamo Heights High School students and Colin Lange.
