Hip Service

At Salisbury Hospital we offer a number of hip surgeries both elective and trauma. These are major surgeries and may require assessment to ensure your fitness to receive an anaesthetic. Our hip surgery services include full hip replacement, hip arthroscopy, hip injection and revision hip surgery. We provide this service with a multidisciplinary team approach where surgeons, specialist physiotherapists and occupational therapists work together to give our patients the best possible outcome.

Our Hip Consultants are:

  • Mr Veitch
  • Mr Pettit
  • Mr Sampalli
  • Mr Vachtsevanos

We also run a pre-operative education session for people awaiting a hip replacement; ‘Joint School’ is run weekly by the therapists to help you prepare and plan for your operation.,d8ab8e62-2e75-4f28-8d20-8918254d56f0
