Costs for Self-Paying Patients

We offer fixed price packages for knee and hip replacement surgery. All hospital costs associated directly with the replacement procedure are confirmed beforehand, giving you the reassurance of knowing what the costs will be.

Once a diagnosis and treatment plan are confirmed by your consultant, a Fixed Price package quote will be provided, if suitable.

There are two package prices available for hip replacements and partial or total knee replacements:


  • Standard primary hip replacement

After meeting your consultant and completing any diagnostic tests, your treatment plan will be discussed and you will be advised if you are eligible for a fixed price package. Thereafter it will be easy to book and you will have peace of mind knowing what the associated costs will be.
