Procedures offered for hip replacement at Spire Tunbridge Wells

At Spire Tunbridge Wells, we have wide experience in hip replacement surgery in our clean, modern facilities. We offer some of the latest surgical innovations, which may be beneficial to some patients. These include:

  • 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

We also have two laminar flow operating theatres which regulate air flow to minimise the risk of infection.
