Procedures offered for hip replacement at Spire St Anthony's Hospital

At Spire St Anthony’s Hospital, we use trusted and clinical proven techniques for hip replacement surgery. We have three laminar flow operating theatres, which regulate air flow to minimise the risk of infection.

If your consultant thinks it’s right for you, they may offer:

  • Minimally invasive hip replacement – this usually means a faster recovery time while still achieving the same outcomes
  • Anterior hip replacement surgery, when incisions are made in the front of the hip, resulting in less pain and faster recovery than with traditional surgery
  • Bilateral hip replacement, when both hips are replaced at the same time.

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.
