Custom Hip Replacement (Bespoke Option)

Home > Hip Surgery > Custom Hip Replacement

For most patients, an off the shelf hip replacement will allow them to return to an excellent quality of life.

However, for some the boney anatomy of their hips means a standard stem may not perfectly recreate their geometry. In these circumstances i have the option to use a Custom (bespoke) prostheses, this is a ‘tailor made solution’ for the individual patient.

I use a computer software package known as HipPlan. It uses the images acquired during a CT scan (normally undertaken at the local hospital) to accurately plan the ensuing surgery. The restoration of equal leg lengths and muscle function and assuring stability of the 'ball and socket' coupling during Total Hip Replacement are three very important parameters where HipPlan can assist the expertise of the operating surgeon to optimise results. Further benefits of this planning process is to achieve the best possible outcomes including prompt discharge from hospital and return to normal activity, feeling almost ‘unaware’ of having had a hip replacement.

Starting from a CT scanner examination, a Custom prosthesis adapts perfectly to the wide range of femoral anatomical variations across the population and allows the patient to recover a perfectly normal quality of life.
