Preparing for hip replacement at Spire Yale

Getting here

The hospital is a few minutes by taxi from Wrexham General and Wrexham Central stations, and approximately 25 minutes by taxi from Chester station. We have free on-site parking available for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Before your treatment, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our six 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. Both your initial consultation and tests at this stage are charged separately to the cost of any treatment needed.

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

When you come in for your operation, you’ll be with us for three to five days. You’ll stay in one of our 18 private rooms. They all include:

  • TV
  • Window
  • Armchair
  • En-suite

Here’s what will happen once you arrive at Spire Yale for your hip replacement operation:

  • You’ll meet your anaesthetist
  • You'll have either a general anaesthetic, where you’re unconscious, or an epidural or spinal anaesthetic, where you're numb from the waist down
  • If you have an epidural or spinal anaesthetic, your anaesthetist can also give you a sedative to help you relax
  • Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, your surgeon will make an incision in your hip area, remove both the socket and the top of your thigh bone and replace them with a new artificial hip joint
  • The operation should take between an hour and an hour and a half

Talking about hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery: your recovery

Once your operation is finished, you’ll be taken back to your private room to start your recovery. You may feel some discomfort and swelling at first, which is completely normal. We’ll give you pain relief to help you and to make sure you’re comfortable, local anaesthetic will be injected during the procedure in theatre.

One of our physiotherapists will get you walking again and give you some exercises you should do throughout your recovery to help you get the most from your operation.

Although everybody’s different and you should always follow your consultant’s advice, here’s a typical recovery timeline for hip replacement surgery:
