Procedures offered for hip replacement at Spire Manchester

At Spire Manchester Hospital, our consultants have wide experience in performing hip replacement surgery. We offer some of the latest surgical techniques, which may be beneficial to some patients. These include:

  • MAKO and NAVIO robotic assisted technology which provides a personalised surgical plan for joint replacement surgery

We also have six laminar flow operating theatres, which regulate air flow to minimise the risk of infection.

The hospital is close to the city centre, with Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria train stations being approximately 20 minutes in a taxi and only 10 minutes from Manchester Airport. We have free parking on-site for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Before your treatment, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 18 consultation rooms. All of our rooms are accessible, so there’s no need to worry if walking is difficult for you. They’ll ask about your health, symptoms and answer any questions you may have.

If you haven’t been diagnosed yet, they may recommend our diagnostic tests and scans to help them assess your hip in more detail. Scans may be available on the same day. Both your initial consultation and tests at this stage are charged separately to the cost of any treatment needed.

If you decide to go ahead with treatment, your consultant will advise you about:

  • What your personalised treatment and care plan will involve
  • Different types of prosthetic joints available
  • Anaesthetic options
  • Potential risks and complications
  • Things you can do to help your recovery

Hip replacement: your procedure

When you come in for your operation, you’ll be with us for two to five days. You’ll stay in one of our large, bright private rooms. They all include:

  • TV
  • En-suite
  • Free WiFi
  • Armchair
  • Window

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

Here’s what will happen once you arrive at Spire Manchester Hospital 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
