Procedures offered for hip replacement at Spire Sussex

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

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

  • Minimally invasive surgery, which uses smaller incisions than traditional techniques, resulting in faster recovery
  • 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
