Hip Replacement at Rowley Hall Hospital

What is a Hip Replacement?

A hip replacement is an operation that replaces a worn or damaged hip joint with an artificial ball and socket joint, known as a prosthesis. 

The procedure is performed under general, epidural or spinal anaesthetic. It involves removing your thighbone head and socket and, replacing them with a prosthetic hip joint. Your hip surgeon will discuss the procedure in depth with you.

Your new hip joint should offer:
• pain reduction
• improved mobility
• greater functionality such as walking easier or riding a bike
• an improved quality of life
