Getting here

You can find us in Hull, just a couple of minutes drive from the Humber Bridge and 15 minutes from Hull and East Riding city centre. Free on-site parking is available for you and your visitors. Public transport options are also available.

Your consultations

All your consultations will take place in one of our 17 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 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’ll then meet your consultant and surgical team who’ll prepare you for 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 usually takes between an hour to an hour and a half.

Head to our main hip replacement surgery page for more information about the procedure.
