Healthwatch 16: Robotic Technology for Hip Replacement
SCRANTON, Pa. -- Hip and knee replacement surgeries are fairly common, and doctors say they're getting less invasive, thanks to robotic technology.

It looked like a video game demonstration in the lobby of Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, but this is actually an up-close look at a robotic surgery tool now in use for orthopedic surgeries, such as hip and knee replacements.
