Private hip surgery in Sheffield

Don’t let hip pain hold you back from doing what you love. Get fast access to treatment at BMI Thornbury Hospital.

At BMI Thornbury Hospital, we offer a variety of treatments for hip pain and discomfort. Some of our most common procedures include:

Hip arthroscopy

An arthroscopy is a keyhole operation in which your Orthopaedic Surgeon will make small incisions around your hip to enable an arthroscope (a small tube with a camera attached to it) to be passed into the joint. The arthroscope allows your Orthopaedic Consultant to view the inside of your joint on a video monitor. Surgical instruments are then passed through other incisions to perform any repairs, such as removing any loose tissue (bones or cartilage) in your joint, or repairing a tear in your labrum (a ring of tissue that surrounds the socket of your hip joint).

Hip resurfacing

If the surfaces of your bones become damaged, hip resurfacing surgery might be recommended to you. The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The femoral head (which is the head of your femur or thigh bone) is the ball, which fits into your acetabulum (a socket in your pelvis).

During hip resurfacing, the Orthopaedic Surgeon reshapes the femoral head and finishes it with a metal covering. The surface of your socket will be replaced with a metal cup. The procedure should reduce hip pain and improve mobility in the joint.

Hip replacement surgery starting from £11,940

Hip replacement surgery can treat damage to your hip joint, which might be the result of an injury or may have resulted from a condition such as arthritis. 

At BMI Thornbury Hospital, you could be offered either a partial hip replacement procedure (also known as a hemiarthroplasty) or total hip replacement surgery (also referred to as an arthroplasty). During total hip replacement surgery, both your femoral head (the head of your femur or thigh bone that helps form your hip joint) and acetabulum (the socket in your pelvis) are removed and replaced with a prosthesis.

During a partial hip replacement operation, only your femoral head is removed and replaced with a prosthesis. The type of hip replacement that you are recommended will depend on the condition of your joints.

Hip revision surgery starting from £18,500

Hip replacement surgery is a very successful procedure and the results can last for many years. Still, the new hip will not be immune to wear and tear, and many people will eventually have to have their prosthesis replaced.

During hip revision surgery, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will remove the artificial components of your hip replacement. Your new prosthesis will then be inserted and secured to your bone using bone cement (a synthetic substance) or a special coating.
