Please note: All our surgical procedures will be carried out at our in-patient hospital at Shepton Mallet, even if you have an outpatient appointment at a different hospital.

Total hip replacement

In this surgical procedure, the hip joint is replaced by two prosthetics – the head of the femur (ball) and the acetabulum (socket). Hip replacement is one of the most common orthopaedic operations in the UK.

Hip revisions

A hip revision, or repeat hip replacement, involves replacing an artificial hip joint if it has become loose, infected or worn out.
