At Spire Southampton, our consultants use trusted and clinically proven hip replacement techniques. Hip replacement surgery can help relieve pain and improve your mobility.

Procedures offered for hip replacement at Spire Southampton

At Spire Southampton, we have a wide experience in hip replacement surgery in our clean, modern facilities, including four operating theatres with laminar flow. These theatres regulate air flow to reduce risk of infection.

We also offer some of the latest surgical innovations, which may be beneficial to some patients. These include:

  • Minimally invasive hip replacement – this usually means a faster recovery time while still achieving the same outcomes
  • Bilateral hip replacement, when both hips are replaced at the same time

Your consultations

Before your treatment, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our 16 consultation rooms. All our rooms are accessible, so there’s no need to worry if walking is difficult for you. 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.

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

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.
