The Exeter Hip Unit is a world-renowned team specialising in disorders of the hip joint. We provide a comprehensive hip surgery service for adults of all ages.

We treat the full range of arthroplasty and non-arthroplasty conditions, including arthritis of the hip joint, revision of failed hip replacements, congenital dysplasia of the hip (CDH), secondary effects of paediatric hip disorders and complications arising from infected hip replacements. We work closely with paediatric colleagues to treat paediatric hip disorders and to coordinate their care into adulthood.

Members of the team, who are are world leaders in many areas of hip surgery, are responsible for the innovative development of the Exeter Total Hip Replacement implant system and techniques for implantation and fixation in total hip replacement. We run several courses a year on which we teach surgeons from around the world and we host surgeons for longer periods of observation and training. We are invited to speak at hip surgery teaching events all over the world.

The team includes four Consultants, one Associate Specialist, three hip fellows, one orthopaedic registrar, one surgical care practitioner and one extended scope physiotherapist and is supported by a variety of specialists, doctors, physiotherapists, nurses, researchers and administration staff.
