Hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery

Schoen Clinic London Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon’s regularly perform hip replacement surgery, using the latest techniques to replace damaged joints that cause pain and limit movement. The surgery takes between 1 and 1.5 hours, and is usually performed under a general anaesthetic or a spinal anaesthetic, depending on which option is best for you.

What happens during hip replacement surgery?

The purpose of a hip replacement is to reduce the amount of pain you feel and improve your mobility. Most hip replacements last between 15 and 20 years, depending on your activity levels and your body weight. You’ll need a hip revision when the artificial joint’s lifespan has been reached.

During the procedure, your Surgeon will cut the side of your hip, remove the damaged joint and insert the artificial joint. The joint may be attached using acrylic cement or it will have a coating that allows it to bond to the bone. The cut then will be closed with staples, stitches, or surgical tape and you will be taken to the recovery room, where a nurse will care for you.

Our Self-Pay Coordinator will give you an exact price for your surgery following your consultation, as well as help you to understand our flexible payment plans which allow you to spread the cost of treatment if you wish too interest-free.
