Doctors develop new techniques for hip replacements

BBC national news reporter Anthony Bartram and cameraman Steve came to see us at Wrexham Maelor hospital on Wednesday.

They spent a great deal of time filming;

1. FLOTE assembly and commissioning in the operating theatre

2. The first patient both before and after surgery

3. The whole surgical procedure carried out by Jamie

4.  A representative of the hospital management who spoke about the surgical impacts, etc

5.  A previous patient at his 6-week follow-up consulatation

They then came to see us at our design and development centre at Hathersage in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District National Park.
