What has NICE said?

Artificial hips and hip resurfacing are recommended as possible treatments for people with end-stage arthritis of the hip.

Only an artificial hip or hip resurfacing with a replacement rate of less than 1 in 20 at 10 years should be used.

What does this mean for me?

If you have end-stage hip arthritis, and your doctor thinks that an artificial hip or hip resurfacing is the right treatment, you should be able to have the treatment on the NHS.
