Procedures offered for hip replacement at Spire Clare Park

At Spire Clare Park, we have vast experience in hip replacement surgery. In our clean facilities we have two operating theatres with laminar flow. These theatres regulate air flow to reduce the risk of infection.

We also offer some of the latest surgical innovations, which may be beneficial to some patients. If your consultant thinks it's right for you, they may offer:

  • Minimally invasive surgery – this uses smaller incisions rather than traditional techniques, resulting in faster recovery
  • Bilateral hip replacement – this is when both hips are replaced at the same time

Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Clare Park

We’re located in Farnham, a 10 minute taxi ride from Farnham train station. If you drive to Spire Clare Park you'll have access to our free on-site parking and can make your way to us comfortably.

Areas served by Spire Clare Park Hospital include Fleet, Farnham and Alton.

Your consultations

All of your consultations will take place in one of our 11 accessible private rooms, so don’t worry if you have pain when walking. During your consultations, we'll:

  • Ask about your medical history
  • Say whether you need blood tests, an X-ray, and/or an MRI or CT scan so they can examine your hip in more detail
  • Tell you about the different types of artificial hip joints – also called prosthetics – as well as the surgical methods
  • Explain about the different anaesthetic options
  • Discuss the potential risks and complications and how they may affect you
  • Give you a chance to ask any questions you have about your surgery

Once you’ve decided to go ahead with hip surgery, your consultant and your physiotherapist will explain your recovery plan. Both your initial consultation and tests at this stage are charged separately to the cost of any treatment needed.

Hip replacement: your procedure

On the day of your procedure, our ward staff will show you into one of our 32 private rooms and get you settled in.

You’ll then meet your consultant and surgical team who’ll prepare you for your operation. If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they’re welcome to wait in our lounge or restaurant while you have your operation.

Anaesthetic options

You’ll probably have a general anaesthetic, so you’ll be completely asleep. However, sometimes it’s preferable or necessary to have a spinal or epidural anaesthetic, where you’re numb from the waist down. If so, your anaesthetist can also give you sedatives to help you relax during the operation.

During your operation

Your consultant will make the necessary incisions and begin to remove worn or damaged areas of your hip joint. They’ll then fit your new hip and close your incisions. The operation should take between an hour and an hour and a half.

A hip replacement procedure usually takes between an hour and an hour and a half. Find out about your surgery at Spire Clare Park on our main hip replacement page.
