Hip replacement

Hip replacement surgery is very common and involves replacing a damaged hip joint with an artificial joint (a prosthesis). After surgery most patients will see a significant reduction in pain and improved movement.

Whilst there is not a minimum age requirement for this surgery, most patients are between the ages of 60 and 80.

Damage to the hip joint is most commonly caused by general wear and tear from age, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or a fracture/injury. 

Usually patients will undergo non-invasive treatment before surgery is recommended, this can include at-home pain relief, physiotherapy and pain injections. However once the pain is no longer manageable or your lifestyle and movement is impacted beyond what is acceptable surgery can be the next recommended step. We perform many different surgeries on patients’ hips including hip resurfacing, total hip replacements, minimally invasive hip replacements, partial hip replacements and revision of existing hip replacements.  

At One Ashford Hospital we can book you in to see a specialist Orthopaedic surgeon, usually within 48 hours, for an initial consultation. 

You can use your private medical insurance or pay for your own treatment. We offer competitive, fixed price packages as well as the ability to spread your cost with the option of 0% finance. If you are using your health insurance please do contact your insurer first for approval and let them know you’d like to be treated at One Ashford Hospital.
