Procedures offered for hip replacement surgery at Spire Fylde Coast Hospital

At Spire Fylde Coast, we have wide experience in hip replacement surgery in our clean, modern facilities. We also offer some of the latest surgical innovations, which may be beneficial to some patients. These include:

  • Minimally invasive surgery, which uses smaller incisions than traditional techniques, resulting in faster recovery
  • Anterior hip replacement surgery, when incisions are made in the front of the hip, resulting in less pain and faster recovery than with traditional surgery
  • Bilateral hip replacement, when both hips are replaced at the same time

At Spire Fylde Coast, we have high-quality facilities, including two operating theatres with laminar flow. These theatres regulate air flow to reduce risk of infection.

Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Fylde Coast

Getting here

Spire Fylde Coast is just a 10 minute drive from junction four of the M55, close to Blackpool’s famous Stanley Park and Blackpool Victoria Hospital. Free on-site parking for patients and visitors makes travelling by car easy, while public transport options are also available.

Your consultations

For your appointments, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 10 consultation rooms. All of our rooms are accessible, which makes it easier if you find walking difficult prior to hip replacement.

Our dedicated orthopaedic consultants specialise in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal (bone and muscle) conditions. Here’s what will happen before your treatment:

  • If you haven’t been diagnosed yet, your consultant may recommend our advanced scanning, imaging and diagnostic technologies to look at your hip and help understand the cause of your pain or mobility problems
  • Once you’ve been diagnosed or if you have a referral, your consultant will then discuss treatment options with you
  • Before recommending a hip replacement, they may suggest hydrocortisone joint injections first

Your consultations give you an opportunity to ask questions and discuss your expectations, needs and desires. Your consultant will then be able to outline a treatment and care plan that’s tailored to you.

Hip replacement: your procedure

When you come in for your operation, you’ll be with us for two to four days. You’ll have one of our 27 large, bright private rooms.

If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they'll be advised when they can return and visit you.

Here’s what will happen once you arrive at Spire Fylde Coast for your hip replacement operation:

  • You’ll meet your surgery team and anaesthetist
  • You'll have either a general anaesthetic, where you’re unconscious, or an epidural or spinal anaesthetic, where you're numb from the waist down
  • If you have an epidural or spinal anaesthetic, your anaesthetist can also give you a sedative to help you relax
  • Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, your surgeon will make one or more incisions in your hip, remove both the socket and the top of your thigh bone and replace them with a new artificial hip joint
  • The operation should take between an hour and an hour and a half

A hip replacement operation 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.
