Rapid access to hip replacement surgery in the UK

The ball and socket joints in the hip are surrounded by cartilage that prevents the bone surfaces from rubbing together.  As people age, this cartilage is worn away, causing pain and stiffness in the hip.  Hip replacement surgery is a procedure to replace the damaged ball and socket with an artificial hip joint (prosthesis).  Hip replacement is a very common and successful operation, providing pain-free movement for up to 15 years.

As the population ages, waiting lists for hip replacement on the NHS have become longer in many parts of the country, and some areas are even restricting the number of procedures that they perform.  Spire Healthcare offers a convenient and affordable way to access hip surgery quickly.

Expert hip resurfacing

Hip resurfacing is a popular surgical alternative to total hip replacement.  Instead of removing the whole joint, the surfaces of the existing ball and socket are removed and replaced with a metal surface.  Recovery times for this procedure are quicker, and many people find that they have a greater range of movement, compared to total hip replacement surgery.  However, hip resurfacing is not suitable for people whose bones may not be strong enough, such as those over 65 or women who have been through the menopause.

Offering private hip arthroscopy

Pain in the groin or a limited movement of the hip sometimes occurs in younger people when the ball of the hip joint is not quite spherical or if the socket is too deep, leading to cartilage damage.  This damage can be repaired using minimally invasive keyhole surgery (arthoscopy), relieving the symptoms and reducing the chances of osteoarthritis developing in the future.  Again, the waiting lists for this procedure are growing on the NHS and Spire Healthcare offers swift access to treatment, minimising the chance of further damage occurring.
