Patient support

The London Hip Unit is unique in the extensive level of support it offers its patients.

Patients that are booked in for surgery will have an hour long appointment (this can be up to one and a half hours if x-rays required) with the Nurse Specialist to discuss their medical history, recover after the surgery, equipment, home circumstances and any worries they may have regarding their treatment and recovery. The Nurses also liase with the anaesthetists regarding medical history and test results; the anaesthetist will then decide if the patient is fit for surgery.
