To protect you, your family and the staff of RNOH Private Care, we now have the facilities to offer video consultations. Your consultant will tell you if your appointment is to be carried out in this way and their practice secretary will provide you with all of the information you need to do this.

If you are asked to attend RNOH Private Care outpatient centre for your appointment, please ensure that you read the information below and follow any social distancing instructions when you arrive at the hospital.

  • Revision Hip Replacement Surgery

    Revision Hip Replacement Surgery

    Reasons for revision

    Aseptic loosening Wear and tear of the joint surface, partial loosening of a joint replacement, resorption (gradual breakdown) of the bone around the replacement causing the bone to become thin or cracking of the cement that holds the implants in place. Revision surgery for this type of loosening usually requires one operation. The loose implant is removed and a new one is put in.

    Septic loosening The hip is loose due to infection. It is difficult to treat infections in the hip as the blood supply is reduced and the implants can make it difficult for antibiotics to get to the specific area. Therefore, the implant is removed with an antibiotic spacer inserted temporarily. The patient is treated with a minimum of six weeks antibiotics and when the infection is clear, another operation is needed to put a new implant back in the hip.

  • Total Hip Replacement (THR)

    Total Hip Replacement (THR)

    There are many conditions which require a hip replacement. The most common is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis simply means that the cartilage of the hip joint has worn out, resulting in the head of the thigh bone/femur (ball) and the acetabulum of the pelvic bone (socket) rubbing together. This is very painful and stops you being able to move your hip as you once did.
