Painful joints?

Worried about mobility?

Could a hip or knee replacement help?

The older we get, the more we can suffer from painful joints.  Fortunately, our specialist clinical team has the perfect answer.  

No matter how active and healthy you are, it is a fact of life that everyday wear and tear can take its toll on your joints.  As well as causing pain and discomfort, this can be emotionally distressing too.  Perhaps worst of all is the threat of losing your mobility if the problem is left untreated.

The good news is that improvements in medical care have made treatment for hip and knee pain quicker and more effective than ever. Today, thousands of patients have successful surgery every year, and that includes hip replacements and knee replacements.  People make fuller and faster recoveries too, because medical advances have improved the knowledge and technology available to specialists.

Why choose Fulwood Hall Hospital?

Simple: hip and knee replacements performed at Fulwood Hall Hospital come with the added peace of mind that you could not be in safer hands. The quality of our service starts with the fact that you will be allocated a dedicated patient advisor; a professional whose job it is to make sure you get the tailored and personalised treatment we think you deserve.

Our clinical teams are made up of leading experts in their field, and the care you will receive is not just performed quickly, effectively and expertly – it is also delivered with courtesy and discretion.  The little things matter to us too, and that is because we know they matter to our patients.  As well as your physical comfort, we also prioritise your personal convenience. It means that a stay at our hospital gives you access to a wide range of facilities and options for making your visit as easy and pleasant as possible.

  • With fast and flexible appointments, surgery can happen sooner, and that can help your recovery too. Why not time your treatment around other commitments like hobbies and holidays?
  • We offer a highly personalised approach to your care, from surgery, discharge and medication through to rehabilitation or follow-up appointments.
  • We use expert consultant orthopaedic surgeons with great reputations, and that gives you the chance to relax knowing you are in safe hands.
  • The products and procedures we use are state of the art and include on-site X-ray, ultrasound and MRI technologies.
  • We have superb physiotherapy rehabilitation facilities all on site; perfect for helping you recovery quickly.
  • Your comfort and convenience are taken very seriously, so we provide private en-suite rooms, healthy menus of freshly prepared food, in-room extras and facilities like free parking.
  • Optional interest-free finance with Zebra Health Finace means treatment with us is easier to pay for, and that means one less reason to delay.
