As orthopedic surgeons, staying at the forefront of advancements in medical technology is crucial for providing the best possible care to patients. Recently, Dr. Sastry had an exciting opportunity that not only showcases the innovative strides in orthopedics but also highlights the trust in his skills. Stryker, a leading medical device company in orthopedics, reached out to Dr. Sastry after learning about his plans to attend the 2024 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) conference.
