The worst part about getting a hip replacement isn’t the surgery, thankfully, we get to sleep through that part.
The worst part is all the waiting.
You can spend weeks, months, or even years just waiting to get the surgery done and then several more weeks of waiting until you’re recovered enough to resume your everyday life.
Trauma and Orthopaedic treatments, such as hip and knee replacements, have some of the longest wait times currently through the NHS, with thousands of patients still waiting for two years or more to have their surgery.
You can skip all the waiting beforehand and even get a headstart on your recovery using this new procedure from MSK Doctors in Grantham, UK. The private clinic hosts several renowned musculoskeletal experts and a self-referral policy that allows you to schedule your own appointments without any waiting list or GP referral.

Traditionally, after having a total hip replacement surgery, you are heavily restricted during your recovery, which can take several weeks at a minimum. This is primarily due to damage caused to muscles and tendons during your surgery, which can be avoided using the new SPAIRE technique.
First developed by Professor Timperley, the SPAIRE hip replacement technique has several benefits over traditional hip replacement surgery, including faster recovery, less time spent in the hospital, and improved stability of the joint. The new procedure has become the standard technique used by Professor Paul Lee of the MSK Doctors private clinic, who mentored under Professor Timperley at the renowned Exeter Hip Unit.
With the improved procedure, you can minimize your hospital stay and return to your everyday routines significantly sooner. Research has shown that absolutely no post-operative mobility restrictions are required, and the technique may also improve the long-term restoration of hip joint functionality (1).
The SPAIRE technique provides these benefits by significantly reducing the damage done to the tendons and quadriceps coxae, an important muscle group in the hip. Since the new technique leaves these muscles intact, you will have improved mobility immediately after your operation, reduced chances of a dislocation, and shortened recovery times.
