Hip replacements are a commonly performed procedure carried out by our specialist orthopaedic surgeons.


Minimally invasive surgery to replace your hip usually takes around 2 hours and will be performed under general anaesthetic. Alternatively, you could have the procedure done under a spinal or epidural anaesthesia, where you don’t feel anything below the waist. In some cases, you’ll have both so that the pain will be reduced while the general anaesthetic wears off.

If you’re having a general anaesthetic, you’ll be asked not to eat or drink anything for 6 hours before the operation. Once you’ve been put under anaesthetic, your surgeon will make an incision over your hip and thigh before using special surgical instruments to separate the ball and socket joint of your hip.

Your surgeon will then remove the ball at the top of your femur and replace it with a ball on a stem that is attached to the bone. Your hip socket will be hollowed out and an artificial socket placed inside that. The two halves of the joint will then be re-joined and your incision will be closed with stitches.
