Overview

The femur is the bone of the thigh, not the leg. This is the largest bone in the body in terms of overall size and weight. It has bony landmarks that are unique only to it, on the proximal end, called trochanters. Always remember that the ead and neck of the femur face medially; this should help if you ever get confused about direction.
