At Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
We also offer an affordable self pay option for patients who do not have health insurance, or have been told they are ineligible for NHS treatment.
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.
A hip revision, or repeat hip replacement, involves replacing a patient’s artificial hip joint if it has become loose, infected or worn out.
In this surgical procedure, the hip joint is replaced by an implant. It can be performed as a total replacement or a half replacement. Hip replacement is one of the most common orthopaedic operations.
