Faulty surgery by inept and untrained doctors is leaving many fracture victims unnecessarily disabled, according to a UK report.

According to the British Orthopaedic Association, which surveyed nearly all the 283 British hospitals providing orthopaedic surgery, 100,000 of the million people who break bones every year are left with a severe disability that could be prevented.
