Mr Singer performs cementless, cemented and hybrid total hip replacements. At consultation, the operation will be fully explained to his patients, including the pre and post-operative care, the recovery period, and the risks and possible complications. He works with an excellent team of anaesthetists, physiotherapists and theatre nurses. Mr Singer follows the enhanced recovery program to optimise a speedy and safe recovery. He uses the latest DVT and antibiotics prophylaxis. He favours a posterior approach to the hip to preserve the muscles and maximise recovery.
