About us

The London Hip Unit

The London Hip Unit is recognised worldwide as a leader in excellence for the treatment of hip problems. As the first of the UK’s still few dedicated private clinics specialising in hip surgery, we aim to provide the optimal combination of established evidence-based techniques, cutting-edge medical science, and state-of-the-art products.



The London Hip Unit was created in 2002 with the aim to provide a fully supported service offering the best possible treatment and lifelong follow-up for adults with hip problems.

It was established by internationally renowned specialist hip surgeon Miss Sarah Muirhead-Allwood BSc FRCS, who has worked for 30 years as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon and has specialised exclusively in hip surgery for over 25 years.

Consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr Angus Lewis joined The London Hip Unit in 2015, followed more recently by hip surgeons Mr William Bartlett and Mr Jonathan Hutt.



The London Hip Unit offers the full spectrum of hip surgery. Miss Muirhead-Allwood performs primary and revision hip replacements and hip resurfacings and is well-known for developing minimally invasive procedures. Mr Angus Lewis, Mr Jonathan Hutt and Mr William Bartlett also offer hip arthroscopy and all forms of hip preservation surgery.

Our philosophy is that each patient is treated on a completely individual basis according to their particular needs. We offer a comprehensive service for adults with all hip complaints, including complex diagnosis, second opinion, hip surgery and revision/redo surgery for patients who have previously had failed surgery.

Our team approach at The London Hip Unit provides the advantage of easy access to second opinions. We discuss complex cases in frequent multidisciplinary team meetings, allowing for robust continuity of care.


Supporting our patients

Our consultant team is supported by a highly dedicated team of nurse specialists, doctors and office personnel committed to the wellbeing and safety of The London Hip Unit's patients. The nurse specialists are on hand to assess and advise patients prior to surgery, while our registrars provide round-the-clock monitoring for patients following surgery.

Located in the heart of central London’s medical district, The London Hip Unit’s suite includes consulting rooms and medical examination rooms. X-ray, ultrasound, MRI and physiotherapy facilities are located within the same building, while other facilities, such as CT scans, are available just a few minutes away.

If you would like to have a consultation with a member of our team, please speak to your GP or consultant for a referral.
