Ramsay Health Care, a leading provider of hip surgery in the UK with a network of 22 private hospitals across the country.
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.
The guide is sponsored by Ramsay Healthcare.
