Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Liverpool Hospital

Getting here

Spire Liverpool Hospital is located just a 15 minute drive from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, and just four miles from Liverpool Lime Street railway station in the city centre. Free on-site parking is available for all patients and visitors.

Your consultations

For your appointments, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 21 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. Both your initial consultation and tests at this stage are charged separately to the cost of any treatment needed.

Hip replacement: your procedure

When you come in for your operation, you’ll be with us for three to four days. You’ll stay in one of our 30 large, bright private rooms.

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

You’ll meet your surgery team and anaesthetist. Here’s what will happen once you're ready:

  • 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 an hour to an hour and a half. Head to our main hip replacement surgery page to learn more about the process.

Talking about hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery: your recovery

After your operation, you’ll be taken back to your private room to start your recovery. Your comfortable room will include:

  • Armchair
  • Bedside cabinet
  • En-suite
  • TV
  • Window

You can expect to be with us for three to four nights.

When you feel ready, your physiotherapist will help you get up and about, with exercises to boost your recovery. Our nursing team will be around to provide pain relief and ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during your stay.

We recommend that someone’s with you for the first 48 hours after surgery, and you have someone help you around the house for the first couple of weeks. Make sure you check with your consultant before:

  • Returning to work
  • Playing sports
  • Driving – you should also check with your insurance company

If you have any queries about your recovery once you’re home, you can call your healthcare team here at Spire Liverpool Hospital.
