Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Elland Hospital

Getting here

Spire Elland Hospital is in West Yorkshire, just 2 minutes drive from the M62 motorway, with free on-site parking available. Public transport options are also available, so you can travel to the hospital in whatever way works best.

Your consultations

All your consultations will take place in one of our 13 private rooms. All our rooms are accessible, so there's no need to 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, complications and benefits, 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, the team 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 to one of our 37 private rooms and get you settled in. 

You’ll 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 your private room while you have your operation.

Anaesthetic options

Usually, you'll have the operation performed under spinal anaesthetic, which means you'll be numb from the waist down. Your anaesthetist can also give you sedation to help you relax, so you are not aware of 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. A hip replacement procedure will usually take an hour to an hour and a half. For more information about the operation, head to our main hip replacement surgery page.
