Pioneering robotic arm used in surgery in Birmingham

A Birmingham hospital says it has become the first NHS hospital in the country to use pioneering technology to complete hip replacements.

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital has invested in a robotic arm which it says helps the surgeon perform hip surgery to within a fraction of a millimetre.

It is designed for patients suffering from degenerative joint disease.
