We are gratified that our paper has generated interest. As mentioned by Sanders et al., there is certainly an expected substantial and dramatic increase in the number of hip fractures in the elderly population both regionally and nationally. This fact must be reinforced to ensure that State and national government health‐care agencies provide sufficient resources in this area to enable future services to meet the expected demands.
