If you're considering hip replacement surgery and want to learn more, you're in the right place. Mr Nadim Aslam, consultant orthopaedic and knee surgeon at The Priory Hospital, responds to our frequently asked questions about hip replacement surgery, including how long you can expect your replacement to last, the cost of a hip replacement and what the procedure involves.
The damaged bone and cartilage within the socket of your hip bone are also removed and replaced with a metal shell that has a liner. After these damaged parts have been placed, the new femoral head will be able to move inside this new, smooth socket in your hip bone.
The average cost of hip replacement surgery is around £12,500.
We allow leisure activities such as tennis, swimming, golf, and increased gym exercise from six weeks after your hip replacement surgery.
If you have a left hip replacement and drive an automatic vehicle, you could return to driving earlier, at around four weeks. However, medications such as opioids could delay how soon you can go back to driving.
