Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Murrayfield Wirral

Getting here

Spire Murrayfield Wirral is situated close to the M53, making it easy to access by car. Birkenhead Hamilton Square Station is just a 15-minute taxi ride away, so you can travel by rail easily too.

Your consultations

All your consultations will take place in one of our 13 accessible private rooms, so don’t worry if you have pain when walking. During your consultations, we'll:

  • Ask all 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 and your physiotherapist will explain your recovery plan.

Hip replacement: your procedure

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.
