Brief description of study

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Regional versus General Anesthesia for Promoting Independence after Hip Fracture (REGAIN Trial)

Detailed Study Description

This study is being done because it is not known whether these two types of anesthesia lead to the same outcome or if one type of anesthesia is better for people who are undergoing surgery to treat hip fractures. We will specifically explore how well you are walking after your surgery, your overall health and quality of life, how well you tolerated anesthesia, and healthcare utilization for the two types of anesthesia.
