Hip Replacement Surgery At London No-Wait Clinic For Fast Return To Activity

May 3, 2024

At MSK Doctors you can get a total hip transplant then return home the next day, ready to walk with crutches. Or, you could practically eliminate your scar, using an advanced technique that’s all about hiding it in your hip line. Find out how.

Do you remember those awful one-size-fits-all rain ponchos? The ones that technically fit everyone, but only because they're practically a giant sheet of plastic with head and arm holes?

Take my advice, don't get a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to your health. If you're in need of a new hip, talk to a top specialist, use advanced techniques, and give your recovery a kickstart. It's worth it, and it's easy - you can book your own appointment with MSK Doctors, at https://mskdoctors.com

Why MSK Doctors?

I can think of a dozen reasons, but here are my top 3:

  1. They have the top specialists in hip transplants, including the founder of MSK Doctors, Prof. Paul Lee. He's not just a specialist, he actually helped to perfect some of the newest techniques, at the renowned Exeter Hip Unit.
  2. They offer advanced techniques, with better results, that aren't available at most clinics. I'll tell you all about your options in a minute.
  3. You can book your own appointment, right now, with no GP referral, and no waiting list. Seriously, it's easy.

Advanced Techniques & Improved Results.

While these surgical techniques are new, they have been thoroughly studied and approved. In fact, you can even find lots of information about the clinical studies, and the benefits they found, on the MSK Doctors website.

It shouldn't surprise you to learn that Prof. Paul Lee was a part of some of those studies as well, and the results speak for themselves. They use a modified Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) that has been shown to reduce blood loss, and prevent damage to several important muscle groups around your hip.

What that means to you and I, is that with significantly less trauma caused during the surgery, healing should be a whole lot easier - and the studies show that this is true, and then some.

Results will vary a bit from person to person, but most MSK Doctors hip replacement clients can stand and practice walking with crutches nearly immediately after their appointment, and can return home within 24 hours after their operation.


So what about these options, what do they mean, and how can you choose?

The BIKINI technique has been gaining a lot of popularity as one of the only options for effectively hiding the scar resulting from a hip transplant. While this technique also offers improved recovery times and a faster return to normal activities, it uses a unique initial incision strategy that allows the surgical team to hide the resulting scar in your “hip line”.

I won't say that it's 100% entirely invisible - but it definitely isn't something you can see at a casual glance, and the better your surgeon is, the better they'll be able to hide it.

The SPAIRE technique uses a more traditional initial incision, which makes the resulting scarring more visible, but with the additional benefit that more surgical trauma can be prevented with this technique, leading to a faster recovery. In clinical trials, the SPAIRE technique greatly reduced the risk of post-operative dislocations, and it also improves your chance of returning to your full level of pre-surgery mobility.

There Is No One Size Fits All Approach.

If you ask a specialist at MSK Doctors, they'll tell you to speak to an experienced surgeon before scheduling your surgery, to determine the best option for your anatomy and priorities.

What works best for someone else, might not be the best option for you, and vice-versa. The good news is, it's not a whole ordeal to find out. It's easy.

It's also worth it, because here's a little tip. While the BIKINI surgery has been shown to help reduce or eliminate visible scarring, for optimal results this should be done only by a surgeon experienced with this particular technique. It is new, and it is different from the usual options, so it's no surprise that in clinical studies, surgeons most experienced with the BIKINI technique were best able to hide the scarring.

I suggest making an appointment with a hip specialist experienced in all these techniques, Prof. Paul Lee. Your visit can be scheduled with no waiting list, and no GP referral, using the online booking option from the MSK Doctors website, or you can just call them.
