The Stryker Joint Replacement division continues to drive above market performance through strict focus on investment in key technology pillars and top talent to support long-term growth in leading orthopaedic patient care solutions that are not only differentiated but that also offer clear economic advantage over competitive offerings. Three pillars have been constants for fueling growth and spinning off innovative product lines; Additive manufacturing, Advanced image analytics, Robotic Arm-assisted technology.
Shawn M. Kroll, Vice President of Robotics Development, started his career with Stryker Corporation 17 years ago as a Manufacturing Support Staff Engineer where he oversaw critical processes for Hip implant manufacturing such as hydroxylapatite synthesis and robotic thermal coating applications, and over the next 15 years he came full circle from working with robots that helped him to developing robots that help patients and surgeons.
