Hip conditions

The information set out in this section has been written exclusively by senior Orthopaedic Consultants who specialise in hip replacement surgery. They explain the range of implants and procedures that are available for hip replacement and their own very personal surgical approach.

Orthopaedic Surgeons specialising in Hip Replacement, discuss "My Choice of Hip Replacement".

Total Health asks ten top hip Consultant Surgeons the following questions:

  • Q1: Which type of hip prosthesis do you routinely use and why?

  • Q2: How long have you used this choice of hip prosthesis?

  • Q3: Do you use this prosthesis exclusively?

  • Q4: If you sometimes use alternative prostheses please specify which type(s) and why?

  • Q5: What procedure do you use?

  • Q6: If you needed a hip replacement now which prosthesis and procedure would you opt for?

  • Q7: What over-riding piece of advice would you give to someone considering having hip replacement?
