Hip replacement: your procedure

When you come in for your operation, you’ll typically be with us for two to three days. You’ll stay in one of our 88 large, bright private rooms. 

If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they’re welcome to wait in your room while you have your operation.

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

  • You’ll meet your surgical 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 hip replacement procedure usually takes between an hour to an hour and a half. For more information, you can head to our main hip replacement surgery page.

As soon as you feel ready, your physiotherapist will help you get up and about, while our nursing team will be on-hand to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.
