Information for Participants

Welcome to the RACER-Hip Study!

We are grateful for your engagement and contribution to this important study!

This page will be updated with news from the trial for participants who are already enrolled in the trial and for those who are considering taking part. It is a place to find any new information and to download our Patient Information sheet and other participant documents for reference at a later date.


This information sheet will provide you with more information on the research so you can decide whether to participate. You have been invited because you have decided to undergo a total hip replacement and your surgeon also thinks this is the best treatment for you.

This study aims to compare robotic assisted total hip replacement with conventional total hip replacement for people with osteoarthritis of the hip. We plan to recruit 378 participants from hospitals across the UK.

Please click on the Patient Information sheet link below to access this document for further information about the study.
