Private hip replacement Brighton

Inclusive treatment and care from £10,845

At The Montefiore Hospital, our consultants use many of the latest surgical techniques for hip replacement in Brighton.

During hip replacement surgery, orthopaedic (bone and muscle) consultants replace damaged parts of the hip with an artificial joint (called a prosthesis). The hip replacement procedure can help make your everyday activities more comfortable, reducing pain and improving mobility.

Procedures offered for hip replacement at The Montefiore

At The Montefiore Hospital, 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:

  • Minimally invasive surgery, which uses smaller incisions than traditional techniques, resulting in faster recovery
  • Bilateral hip replacement, when both hips are replaced at the same time

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

Preparing for hip replacement at The Montefiore

Getting here

The Montefiore is conveniently located 15 minutes’ walk from both Brighton and Hove train stations, making rail travel easy. The same journey takes just five minutes in a taxi.

Your consultations

Before your treatment, you’ll meet your consultant in one of our eight consultation rooms. All of 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

Watch how a hip replacement surgery takes place

Hip replacement: your procedure

You’ll meet your consultant and surgical team who’ll prepare you for your operation. If you've come with a friend or family member, they're welcome to wait in your room or our lounge area while you have your operation.

Anaesthetic options

You’ll probably have a general anaesthetic, so you’ll be completely asleep. However, sometimes it’s preferable or necessary to have a spinal or epidural anaesthetic, where you’re numb from the waist down. If so, your anaesthetist can also give you sedatives to help you relax during the operation.

During your operation

Your consultant will make the necessary incisions and begin to remove worn or damaged areas of your hip joint. They’ll then fit your new hip and close your incisions. The operation should take between an hour and an hour and a half.
