Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Nottingham

Getting here

Spire Nottingham Hospital is located just five miles south of Nottingham city centre, off the A52. Nottingham train station is around a 15 minute taxi ride away. We also have 300 on-site parking spaces available 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.

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.
