Background: Femoral Neck Fracture (FNF) is prevalent in young people. It is mostly due to high-energy trauma and creates many challenges in surgical repair. A few patients with hip fractures can fully recover from the injury and act independently in their daily activities. In this study, we evaluated the results of FNF operation in patients younger than 60 years. 
Objectives: This study was conducted to evaluate the outcome of femoral neck surgery in young patients and comparison the complications according to types of surgery ,age,delay and type of FNF fracture. 
Methods: This study was a retrospective-prospective descriptive and analytical study on patients 15 to 60 years old with FNF from 2013 to 2017. The surgical efficacy and its results were evaluated using the Harris Hip Scale (HHS). The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS version V. 24. 
Results: The Mean±SD age of 53 study patients was 42.07±12.5 years. The Mean±SD femoral neck shortening was 7.05±5.42 mm, and the HHS score was 82.7±6.9. Avascular Necrosis (AVN) was seen in 10 (18.9%), malunion in 11 (20.8%), nonunion in 1 (1.9%)  and failure in 3 (5.7%) patients. Eight patients had reoperation procedures. The type of fracture, delay in surgery, type of operation, and the shortening of the femoral neck were predictive factors of postoperative complications (P<0.05). 
Conclusion: According to this study, reducing the delay for surgery, increasing anatomic reduction, and preventing the shortening of the femoral neck can improve the quality of life, reduce complications, and decrease the economic burden.
