A femoral neck fracture is a global health problem which mainly occurs among the elderly. Hip hemiarthroplasty is a popular modality in treating femoral neck fractures nowadays. Osseointegration refers to the structural binding between the bone and the implant surface; hence, a proper osseointegration of an implant will provide stable and functional anatomy. Early detection of osseointegration can make the clinician know prediction how the successful their operation. The aim of the study was to correlation a partial weight bearing with osseointegration using serial radiological examination where characteristics such as bone sclerosis and cortical-periosteal thickening. This study is a retrospective analytic-observational study conducted at Orthopaedic and Traumatology Surabaya Hospital, entailing 96 patients after cementless bipolar hemiarthroplasty operation from January 2012 to January 2021. Among patients with bipolar hemiarthroplasty female predominated the group with 75%, and the most frequent age group was between 71 and 80 years old. The most common the patient take partial weight bearing on day three post operation. There is positive correlation between sclerosis bone and cortical-periosteal thickening of pelvis radiographs that began to appear in the 6-week evaluation and became more prominent after one year.
