Hip Surgery

Hip replacement
Total hip replacement is performed on patients with a worn out/arthritic hip joint, where symptoms (such as pain and stiffness) have failed to respond to non-operative treatments such as pain-killers and physiotherapy. Robotic assisted hip replacement is now available. More about a hip replacement

Revision Hip Replacement
Total Hip replacement is a highly successful operation with over 70,000 operations performed in the UK last year (National Joint Registry). Find out more about revision hip replacement

Hip Arthroscopy
Hip arthroscopy is a relatively new procedure which allows the surgeon to diagnose and treat hip disorders by providing a clear view of the inside of the hip with very small incisions. Find out more about hip arthroscopy

Hip Block
This is a diagnostic test in that it is sometimes used to make sure that pain is coming from the hip joint before other surgery (such as hip replacement) is planned. Find out more about a hip block

Payment options

If you have private health insurance it is important to check how much your policy will pay, because some policies do not cover all the associated costs. This is due to the fact that many insurance companies have not increased their cover for surgical fees for over 15 years. This is despite inflation and the rapidly increasing costs of medical indemnity insurance.

For patients paying for their own treatment there is the option of fixed price surgery. This cost includes medical fees, hospital fees, drugs and surgical implants, physiotherapy in hospital, any medical treatment whilst in hospital, and for an extended stay for complications directly related to the procedure following surgery.
