Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Portsmouth

Getting here

Spire Portsmouth is located on the West Sussex/Hampshire border, a 15 minute drive from both Portsmouth and Chichester. We have free on-site parking for yourself and your visitors.

Your consultations

Before your treatment, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 15 consultation rooms, located on the ground floor. 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. 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 three to four days. You’ll stay in one of our 48 large, bright private rooms. They all include:

  • TV with Freeview
  • Window
  • Armchair
  • Wardrobe

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

Here’s what will happen once you arrive at Spire Portsmouth 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
