Preparing for knee replacement at Spire Regency

Getting here

Spire Regency Hospital is situated just outside Macclesfield town centre, off the A537. Macclesfield town centre and train station are just five minutes away, making the hospital easy to access using public transport. Free on-site parking is also available for all patients and visitors.

Your consultations

For your appointments, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 10 consultation rooms. All of our rooms are accessible and located on the ground floor, making things easier if you find walking difficult prior to knee 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 will use our scanning, imaging and diagnostic technologies to look at your knee and help them 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 knee replacement, they may suggest hydrocortisone joint injections or knee arthroscopy first

Your consultations give you an opportunity to ask questions and discuss your expectations, needs and requirements. Your consultant will then be able to outline a treatment and care plan that’s tailored to you.

Knee replacement: your procedure

When you come in for your operation, you’ll be with us for two to four days. You’ll stay in one of our large, bright, private en-suite rooms which has a lockable space for your things and entertainment to keep you occupied as you start your recovery.

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

Anaesthetic options

When it’s time for your knee replacement, you’ll meet your surgery team and anaesthetist, who’ll administer the type of anaesthetic you’ve agreed on with your consultant. It’ll be a general anaesthetic or an epidural (spinal anaesthetic) where you’ll be numb from the waist down.

You can visit our main knee replacement page for more information about the procedure.

During your operation

Your consultant will make the necessary incisions and remove parts of your knee joint, then fit your artificial joint (called a prosthesis) and close your incisions. The procedure usually takes up to two hours to complete.
