Hip Replacement Surgery in Bedford





Hip replacement surgery is the definitive management and the only possible cure for severe hip arthritis. It is major surgery but it is successful in more than 90% of cases and it was declared “the operation of the 20th century.” The procedure involves an incision on the lateral side of your hip, the worn part of the joint (the “socket” and the head of the thigh bone) is replaced with metal components fixed either by press fit or cement to the bone and the new prosthetic joint bearing can be metal on hard plastic (polyethylene), ceramic on hard plastic or ceramic on ceramic, depending from case to case. Aftercare involves a stay in hospital between 2 and 4 days, depending on how well the postoperative pain is controlled and how quickly you regain confidence in mobilising. After discharge, you will be followed-up in the Clinic at 6 weeks and 6 months post operation (more frequently if necessary).

Complex Hip Replacement Surgery

Mr Arvinte also performs complex hip replacement surgery, receiving local and regional referrals. These types of case (severe deformities, loss of bone stock, previous failed hip surgeries, high body mass index) need special expertise and technique. Mr Arvinte's hip surgery outcomes are very good, as shown in the UK National Joint Registry.

I can now stand up straight and walk...

I would highly recommed Mr Dan Arvinte his professonalism and support and care before and after both of my surgeries which were both complex hip replacement and muscle reconstruction, before the surgery i was bent over almost in a fetal position i was using a mobility scooter as walking was both painful and exhausting. I can now stand up straight and walk short distances with canes am going to the gym and using a swimming pool to improve this. None of this would have been possible without Mr Arvinte.
