Good evening all.
Hope you are all keeping safe in these uncertain times. I have been suffering with hip pain for years. Basically I have had enough and I am looking for a specialist/surgeon to go and see to hopefully get this sorted. Who do you guys here recommend in the UK. Private or NHS. I would be very grateful of a reply so that I can start to live a painfree life again.

Take care all
G

Where in the UK do you live, @ger36512 ?
And how far are you prepared to travel?

@ger36512 Welcome to BoneSmart! Unfortunately all elective surgery is currently on hold across the NHS. Most consultants have a private practice. Are you able to go private? If so I'll do a bit of research for you. You would need to check with the consultant's office to confirm if they are still practicing during this health crisis.

Do you know about the National Joint Registry? It's a database of UK orthopaedic consultants that gives you key information like how many replacements they do per year, a profile of their patients and where they practice. You want someone with a very high number of replacements per year - ideally over 150 but 200 is even better.
