ROH surgeon featured on kids TV

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Prof. Edward Davis has took part in a new TV programme aimed at children who have an interest in science and technology.

FYI: For Your Info is a Sky News programme for kids, presented by kids. Their spin-off programme, FYI WOW, is focused on innovation in science and technology. A film crew and 10-year-old presenter Brayden Bent visited the Trust and filmed a hip replacement, with Prof. Davis and his team, assisted by the Mako robot.

The advanced Stryker Mako robotic arm-assisted surgery transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed, enabling the ROH’s team of highly-trained surgeons to operate with even more accuracy.

The Woodlands Suite at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital was the first NHS hospital in the UK to offer Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery during hip and knee replacements to private patients.
