Why do I need hip replacement surgery?

The hip can become damaged leading to pain and immobility for a number of reasons:


Over time, the cartilage in the hip joint wears away causing the bone surfaces to rub together.  This is the most common reason for hip replacement surgery and usually affects people aged 60-80.

Rheumatoid arthritis

An autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the lining of the hip joint, damaging the joint, cartilage and nearby bone.  It can affect people of any age, but is most common in those aged 40-70.

Hip fractures and trauma

Sometimes a hip is so badly damaged that a replacement is the best form of treatment

Congenital hip dysplasia

In some children the hip joint does not form properly and if this is not identified very early in life it can lead to arthritis developing prematurely.

Total hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery is a very successful and common operation, greatly improving a patient's mobility and quality of life.  Under general anaesthetic or, in some cases an epidural, the damaged hip joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint made of metal, plastic or ceramic.  The operation takes between one and one and a half hours, with a hospital stay of four to seven days.  Modern artificial hip joints should last approximately 15 years.

Computer-assisted navigation for hip replacement surgery

BMI Healthcare is able to offer the latest techniques for hip replacement surgery, including total hip replacement by computer-assisted navigation that allows the surgeon to place the artificial joint with the utmost accuracy.

Hip revision surgery

Occasionally a hip replacement wears out, or becomes infected or dislocated.  The expert surgeons at BMI Healthcare can, in many cases, replace the affected artificial joint with a new one.
