Hip surgery

Private hip surgery to get you out of hip pain

Hip pain is an extremely common problem in adults and problems like pain, stiffness and loss of flexibility in the hips can have a significant impact on your ability to carry out many everyday activities.

Hips can be damaged by injury or disease, but the most common cause of hip joint pain is osteoarthritis.

When hip pain is relatively mild it can often be easy to ignore, but if it becomes more severe you may find simple movements like sitting and standing, walking up and down stairs or putting your shoes on, much more difficult to do.

Hip pain can be frustrating to live with, but it’s good to know that effective treatments are available. An assessment by one of our experienced hip surgeons will help determine the cause of your hip pain. Some hip pain will be from the joint itself, others from the surrounding soft tissues while some may be referred from the back.

Here at BMI The Park Hospital, leading consultant hip surgeons treat the causes of hip pain, helping people to regain movement and function in their hips. If you would like to learn more about treatment options for your specific hip condition, it’s very easy to book an appointment with us. We would be delighted to help you.

Most people with hip pain that doesn’t resolve itself will see their GP, who will often advise treatment with some type of pain relief medication and/or a course of physiotherapy. These can certainly be helpful for many people, particularly if they are in the earlier stages of osteoarthritis but are often of limited help when damage to the joint is more extensive.

At the moment, many patients are finding it is taking longer to see their GP for an appointment. The consultants at BMI The Park Hospital can review you in advance of a GP appointment to help reduce your waiting time. This may help you to get the treatment you need, and the pain relief you want, sooner.

If non-surgical treatments aren’t able to relieve your symptoms, you may need hip surgery. In this case, you will normally be referred to a hip surgeon, who will explore possible options with you.

The most common hip surgery is Total hip replacement. This removes the damaged hip joint and replaces it with a new artificial one (known as a prosthesis). This surgery is often needed when osteoarthritis in the hip has caused such extensive damage to the joint that you are in significant pain and have a severe lack of movement in the hip.

Some hip conditions, such as a labral tear or hip impingement, can be investigated with a type of keyhole surgery known as hip arthroscopy. If any damage is found, it can often be repaired during the arthroscopy, avoiding the need for further surgery.

Other hip symptoms and conditions will benefit from joint preservation treatment which helps to maintain and protect hip function. It may help avoid (or at least delay) more invasive surgery, like a total hip replacement.

If you have previously had a total hip replacement and now have pain in your hip, you may need revision hip replacement to replace your prosthesis.

Whatever is found to be causing your hip pain, your consultant will make sure that you receive the most appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

The most important step in getting you out of hip pain is to get an accurate diagnosis. When you first meet with your consultant hip surgeon at BMI The Park Hospital, they will take your medical history and ask you about the symptoms you’re experiencing. They may ask you questions like:

  • What symptoms do you have?

  • When did these symptoms first begin?

  • Do any activities or movements make your symptoms worse?

  • Have your symptoms been getting worse over time?

  • Have you tried any treatments already and were they helpful?

You consultant will carry out a physical examination of your hips. They will also examine your back and knees, as hip pain can sometimes be caused by a problem in these areas.

Depending on your symptoms, medical history and the physical examination, your consultant may refer you for further investigations. Our comprehensive on-site imaging facilities include X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound, so these can all be easily and quickly arranged for you when needed.

Once any results are back and a diagnosis has been made, your consultant will discuss treatment options with you. They will explain the benefits you should expect to see as well as any potential complications or risks.

Based just outside Nottingham, people travel to us from across Nottinghamshire and the surrounding counties for expert, reliable help with their hip pain.

Most people are referred directly to us by their GP, physiotherapist (or sports physiotherapist), osteopath, chiropractor or their private medical insurance provider. Others self-refer because they want to get help for their hip pain sooner.

We treat private medical insurance and self-pay patients.

When you choose to visit the BMI The Park Hospital in Nottingham for help with your hip pain, you will benefit from:

  • Remote consultation – While consultations are routinely carried out in person at BMI The Park Hospital, we can also offer remote consultations by telephone or online video call where required (and when clinically appropriate).

  • Comprehensive support – Our experienced on-site physiotherapy team will guide you throughout your time with us, both before and after surgery. They will help you to regain strength, mobility and function in your hip once more, safely.

  • Implant availability – Unlike many hospitals where the use of more expensive implants may be quite limited, we can help you choose a bespoke implant to best suit your lifestyle needs and bone quality.

  • Multidisciplinary team – Your consultant is supported in their work by a number of other specialists. From physiotherapists and nurses to occupational therapists and radiologists, you will always receive help from the most appropriate person at every stage of your treatment journey with us.
