Hip Replacement in Manchester

Hip replacement surgery may be carried out when other non-surgical methods have failed. Following successful hip replacement surgery, most people will experience reduced pain, improved function and increased movement in the hip joint.

What is Hip Replacement Surgery?

Hip replacement surgery is a surgical procedure which involves removing the damaged hip joint and replacing it with an artificial joint. This surgery is usually required if the hip joint has been so worn and deteriorated that simple activities have become difficult to carry out.

The Procedure

During a total hip replacement, the patient will be given anaesthetic to numb the lower part of the body. An incision will be made on the side of the hip and the damaged ball and socket will be removed and replaced with an artificial joint. The operation is usually one hour to an hour and a half.

How to Prepare for Hip Replacement Surgery

When preparing for hip replacement surgery, it’s always a good idea to research and learn about the procedure as much as possible. It’s important to write down any questions you have and to ask your consultant at your next consultation. Maintaining a healthy weight may also be advised.

Knee Surgery

Our consultant orthopaedic surgeons offer a range of knee surgeries including total knee replacement surgery, knee arthroscopy, partial knee replacement surgery and ACL reconstruction.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee replacement surgery is a procedure which involves removing the worn out knee joint and replacing it with an artificial one. The aim of this procedure is to improve function, increase mobility and reduce pain.

Knee Arthroscopy

A knee arthroscopy involves making a small incision in the knee and inserting a tiny camera, called an arthroscope, into the knee joint. It can be used to diagnose and treat conditions relating to the knee.

ACL Reconstruction

If the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) becomes damaged or torn, surgery to repair it may be required. The ACL can become damaged from a sports related injury.

Spinal Surgery

Our spinal surgeons offer a range of surgeries to treat conditions such as sciatica and spinal stenosis. Surgeries we offer include lumbar decompression surgery, lumber microdisectomy and cervical spine surgery.

Lumbar Spinal Decompression

Lumbar spinal decompression is a procedure that’s performed to relieve compression of the spinal cord or surrounding nerves. It’s often used to treat spinal stenosis which can affect the way you walk.

Lumbar Microdisectomy

Lumbar microdisectomy is a surgery that’s carried out to relieve the pressure caused by a herniated disc onto the spine. This procedure can help to relieve the leg pain caused from sciatica.

Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis can be treated with surgery which corrects and straightens the curvature of the spine with implanted rods.

Shoulder Surgery in Manchester

We offer a range of shoulder surgeries including shoulder replacement surgery, shoulder arthroscopy and rotator cuff surgery.

Rotator Cuff Surgery

The rotator cuff is one of four ligaments in your shoulder joint. If it becomes damaged or injured, rotator cuff surgery may be required.

Shoulder Arthroscopy

Shoulder arthroscopy involves making a small incision into the shoulder and inserting a tiny camera into the shoulder joint. This enables the surgeon to see inside the shoulder where they can diagnose and treat the problem.

Manchester Foot Surgeons

Our orthopaedic surgeons offer a range of surgeries for various foot problems. Surgeries we offer include bunion surgery and foot surgery for toe problems.

Foot Surgery for Toe Problems

Foot surgery for toe problems can help to resolve issues related to deformities, pain in the toe joint and metatarsalagia.

Bunion Surgery

Bunion surgery can be performed to remove bunions which are painful, bony lumps on the side of the foot. Successful bunion surgery can relieve pain.
