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:

  • Robotic assisted technology which provides a personalised surgical plan for joint replacement surgery
  • Minimally invasive hip replacement - this usually means a faster recovery time while still achieving the same outcomes.

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

Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Manchester

Getting here

The hospital is close to the city centre, with Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria train stations just a 20-minute taxi ride away. Spire Manchester is just 10 minutes from Manchester airport. Free on-site parking for patients and visitors means you can arrange transport right up to our door.

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

On the day of your procedure, our ward staff will show you to your room and get you settled in. If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they’re welcome to wait in your room while you have your operation.

Your consultant and surgical team will prepare you for your operation.

Anaesthetic options

When you’ve had time to settle into your private room, your anaesthetist will administer a general anaesthetic, where you’re completely asleep, or an epidural (spinal anaesthetic) where you’ll be numb from the waist down. If you’re having an epidural, you can also have sedatives to help you relax.

During your operation

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. A hip replacement surgery usually takes an hour to an hour and a half.

Hip replacement surgery: your recovery

When you come in for your hip replacement operation, you’ll stay with us for two to three days.

Your private room

After your operation, you’ll be taken to your private room to start recovery. It’s normal to feel discomfort after the surgery, but our nursing team will be on-hand to provide pain relief.

Your large, bright private room includes:

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

What happens

You’ll receive pain relief medication to help you recover in comfort. Your physiotherapist will get you moving as soon as you feel ready and will provide exercises to help you make the most of your hip replacement.

When you’re ready, your physiotherapist will help you walk again and provide exercises to boost your recovery.
