SPAIRE Hip Instruments

SPAIRE Hip Instruments are exclusively Made In Britain by Platts & Nisbett.

The SPAIRE technique (Sparing Piriformis And Internus, Repair Externus) involves a muscle sparing posterior approach to the hip. Fewer tendons are damaged using the SPAIRE technique than any other approach to the hip as it involves division (and subsequent repair) of only one small tendon. This technique allows patients to mobilise without any post-operative restriction to their activities.
