Anaesthesia Hip Replacement

All patients are assessed pre-operatively to establish the safest and most appropriate anaesthetic technique for each individual. Your anaesthetist will discuss the clinical benefits of any techniques with you before you go to theatre.

There are two main types of anaesthesia that can be used for a total hip replacement: GENERAL ANAESTHESIA and REGIONAL ANAESTHESIA.

This video goes into more detail about these Anaesthetic options. There is further information in the downloadable document below.
