Hip replacement guide: Hip replacement surgery in the UK

As the population gets older, more people are in need of hip replacements for hip joints that have been damaged by osteoarthritis. Hip replacement on the NHS may involve a lengthy wait for diagnosis and surgery. So, for many people, a private hip replacement, either covered by health insurance or on a self pay basis, becomes an attractive option.

This guide to private hip replacement tells you what's involved, what to look out for and what you need to consider both before and after the hip operation.
