COPD is not a contra indication for hip surgery. And it requires only spinal anaesthesia.

Need to assess the current status of the Lungs with the help of Plumonologist and with their fitness we can go ahead with surgery.

Patients with COPD represent a high percentage of risk groups, but COPD per say is not a contraindication for any surgery. It all depends on patient's general condition. Once the doctor gives fitness, surgery can be planned. Preoperative check-up of the respiratory system is necessary in order to prevent and avoid complications. The intraoperative care with respiratory and hemodynamic monitoring as well as postoperative care in the ICU will take of everything. Consult an orthopedic surgeon, physician for help.
