The London Hip Unit is globally renowned for its specialist treatment and care of adults with hip problems. Established in 2002, it offers patients a full range of surgical expertise backed by cutting-edge medical facilities, including X-ray and MRI testing, at a single location. The patients receive excellent support right from consultation to surgery to recovery. Each patient receives exclusive attention and is prescribed a tailor-made treatment and recovery path.
Located in central London, the London Hip Unit is led by Miss Sarah Muirhead-Allwood BSc FRCS, who is one of the world's leading hip surgeons. She is particularly acknowledged for her rich experience and advanced expertise in complex and revision hip replacements and in minimally invasive procedures, and is one of only a handful of UK surgeons to offer this approach.
Miss Muirhead-Allwood is supported by an able and caring team of registrars, anaesthetists, nurse specialists and medical secretaries who ensure the entire experience of patients is as smooth as possible. The nurse specialists assess and advise patients prior to surgery, while the registrars provide round-the-clock monitoring for patients following surgery. The London Hip Unit is acknowledged for providing the best possible treatment and lifelong follow-up for adults with hip problems.
