Hip replacement costs in the UK vary depending on the type of hip replacement you have and where you have the procedure.

On average, total private hip replacement surgery in the UK costs around £12,500.

The price of having your hip joint replaced will be different at different hospitals and sometimes different surgeons have different costs. Prices can also vary depending on what type of implant you have and what materials it is made of, as well as whether your surgeon uses computer-assisted technology or robotic surgical tools

How much is a hip replacement with Circle Health Group?

At Circle Health Group, we offer tailored treatment plans with fixed-price packages to make your payment process as simple as possible. We offer fixed-price packages for hip replacement surgery starting from around £12,825.*

This cost includes hospital fees, surgeons costs and aftercare. It doesn't cover your consultant outpatient appointment fees or any diagnostics you need for diagnosis.

If you would like a quote tailored to your personal circumstances, you can give us a call and one of our friendly advisors will be happy to help you.

*This is a guide price for patients paying for their own treatment. The actual cost of your hip replacement will be confirmed at the time of booking.

We offer the option to spread the cost of your treatment across a time period that suits you. Your fees will be spread evenly across fixed-term instalments that are paid monthly over one to five years, and do not require a deposit.

Think of it as pay-monthly private healthcare, here to help you access private treatment when you need to without paying all at once. 

We’ve partnered with Chrysalis Finance, the UK’s largest patient payment solutions company, to help you manage the cost of your treatment over a timeframe that suits you.

We provide fixed-term loans through Chrysalis Finance, which also allows you to pay for your treatment in monthly instalments.

Through the scheme, you can benefit from:

  • Interest-free monthly repayments when spread over a 10-month period
  • The option to spread the cost of your treatment over a period of up to five years. A 14.9% annual percentage rate will apply if the loan is taken out for more than a 10-month period

Our private hip replacement costs include your surgery, your consultant and anaesthetist's fees, hospital fees, the cost of your private room, and your aftercare including follow-up appointments and physiotherapy. Our fixed-price packages are designed to take the worry out of your payments, because you know exactly what you will pay ahead of time. There won't be any nasty surprises down the line.

The things that are not included in this fixed price are the cost of your first appointment with your consultant (which starts from about £200) and the cost of tests and scans you might need before we decide if a hip replacement is the right choice for you. These will be billed at the time, and you'll always know the price before you agree to anything.

We have a network of brilliant orthopaedic consultants working across more than 50 hospitals around the UK. They are highly skilled in performing total hip replacement surgery, using the best and most durable material to replace your hip or part of your hip with.

The implants we use for hip replacement surgery are usually constructed of metal, ceramic, plastic, or a combination of the three. This material is the same regardless of whether you have treatment privately or with the NHS.

Before placing the permanent implant (also known as a prosthesis) in your hip, your surgeon will use a test implant to check that its measurements match your anatomy and that your new joint moves as it should.

Your consultant will fit your prosthesis as precisely as possible to ensure your new hip feels natural and moves freely. After recovering from hip replacement surgery, you will experience improved mobility and significantly reduced pain – or no pain at all.

The benefits of hip replacement surgery are long-lasting. In practice, most hip replacements last much longer than ten years.

A study highlighted by the National Institute for Health Research, found that more than 50% of hip replacements last for 25 years or more.

You can also pay for hip replacement surgery using private medical insurance. 

Private health insurance (also known as private medical insurance or PMI) is designed to help you go private for treatment and not worry about the costs.

Private health insurance covers the cost of your care, allowing you to get fast access to treatment and feel safe in the knowledge that the price will be covered by your policy.

Personal private healthcare insurance is paid for directly. You might pay monthly instalments or an annual fee.

Lots of people have cover through their work, in which case your employer will deal with the insurance provider.

You might pay a fee each month for the policy, but this will likely come out of your salary before you are paid.

Everything you need to know about private health insurance.

Don’t worry. You don’t have to pay outright for private hip replacement surgery if this is not a feasible option for you.

You can pay for treatment using one of our flexible payment options mentioned above, or you can pay through private health insurance.

We understand that choosing the right payment option can be confusing, which is why we have a knowledgeable advisory team on hand to help explain the options to you in detail, and help you decide which option best suits your needs.

One of the main benefits of private healthcare is that it offers you fast access to care.

We know that living with hip pain can significantly impact your quality of life, interfering with the simplest of everyday activities, such as walking, driving, even just going to the shops. Living with pain and reduced mobility can lead to understandable feelings of frustration and upset. The longer the waiting time, the longer you have to live with this. 

Private healthcare allows you to access treatment quickly and get your life back faster. There are many other benefits of going private, including:

  • The freedom to choose your hospital and your consultant
  • Bespoke, consultant-led treatment plans tailored to your individual needs
  • Computer-assisted and robotic technology available, which can reduce recovery time and improve outcomes
  • Private rooms with ensuite facilities as standard
  • Tasty and nutritious meals cooked on-site to your dietary requirements
  • Support from the same compassionate clinical team from beginning to end

It's easier than you think to access private treatment without the need for health insurance.

If you are paying for yourself (also known as self-pay), your consultant will send you a bill for the cost of your initial consultation.

The price of this is payable directly to your consultant, who will let you know the best way to pay.

The rest of your treatment is paid directly to Circle Health Group. We will send you a bill and all the information you need before having surgery. The payment will need to be paid in advance of your treatment. 

If you like, you can pay the full price of your treatment in one go. Some people pay online, and others over the phone.

There is also the option to pay by post, or at hospital after your initial consultation and treatment plan has been decided.

Otherwise, you can use our flexible payment options. In this instance, we’ll let you know exactly what to do to make sure all the costs are covered.
