MAHWAH, N.J., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker Corporation's Orthopaedics division announced today during the annual American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) convention that it launched its first iPad™ applications for surgeons, available through Apple's App Store(SM) to help them enhance the patient education process and provide easy access to information about products and surgical techniques.

"With the amount of information at everyone's fingertips today, medical device maker-surgeon interaction can be instantaneous, and medical device makers should be able to provide surgeons with digital access to educational tools that can support their dialogue with self-educated patients."
