Procedures offered for hip replacement surgery at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital

At Spire Gatwick Park, 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 Gatwick Park, we have clean, modern facilities, including three operating theatres, two of which have laminar flow – these theatres regulate air flow to reduce risk of infection.

Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Gatwick Park

Getting here

Spire Gatwick Park is just a few miles from Gatwick Airport and the M25 and M23 motorways. Central London and London Victoria station are a 30 minute train ride away. If you're travelling by car, we have free parking on-site for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

All your consultations will take place in one of our 12 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 to one of our 34 private rooms and get you settled in. You should be with us for around three days.

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 our lounge 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.

A hip replacement procedure will usually take between an hour and an hour and a half. For more information about the operation, head to our main hip replacement surgery page.
