Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Nottingham

Getting here

Spire Nottingham Hospital is situated five miles south from Nottingham city centre off the A52. Nottingham station is approximately 15 minutes by taxi from the hospital. We have 300 free parking spaces for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

For your appointments, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 20 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 needs and expectations. 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

On the day of your operation, our ward staff will show you to your own private room. We have 42 private rooms at Spire Nottingham, all of which contain:

  • Freeview TV
  • En-Suite Bathroom
  • Walk-in shower
  • Armchair
  • Free WiFi
  • Complimentary toiletries
  • Robe and slippers
  • Nurse-call system

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

Once you’re ready, you’ll prepare for your operation and be given your anaesthetic. You’ll have either:

  • General anaesthetic where you’re unconscious
  • An epidural or spinal anaesthetic where you're numb from the waist down – your anaesthetist may give you a sedative to help you relax

During the operation, your surgeon will make one or more incisions and remove damaged or worn parts of your hip joint. They’ll then insert your new, prosthetic joint. The operation should take around an hour and a half. You’ll probably stay with us for two to four days after your operation, until we feel you’re ready to go home and continue your recovery there.

Hip replacement surgery: your recovery

Once your operation is finished, you’ll be taken back to your private room to start your recovery. You may feel some discomfort and swelling at first, which is completely normal. We’ll give you pain relief to help you and make sure you’re comfortable.

One of our physiotherapists will get you walking again and give you some exercises you should do throughout your recovery to help you get the most from your operation.

Although everybody’s different and you should always follow your consultant’s advice, here’s a typical recovery timeline for hip replacement surgery:

1-2 days

2-4 days

Leave hospital

1-2 weeks

Walking more using a walking aid
