MAHWAH, N.J., Sept. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Stryker ends its 2021 10-city tour with Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) by making its final stop at Las Vegas Ballpark. Stryker will be bringing the SmartRobotics™ Stadium booth to Las Vegas Aviators’ fans today and Saturday, September 11, to showcase the latest innovation in joint replacement technology, Mako SmartRobotics™.
Stryker will have a local orthopaedic surgeon on-site to speak with individuals about joint health and treatment options. Those in attendance will learn more about Stryker during the games through videoboard commercials and promotions, including a seat upgrade for a lucky fan and a seventh-inning stretch promotion. Additionally, fans are encouraged to participate in engaging and entertaining activities in between innings with the chance to win prizes at the booth located on the concourse behind section 116.
«Stryker is excited to round out our tour and join fans at Las Vegas Ballpark for a fun and safe outdoor event,» said Don Payerle, president of Stryker’s Joint Replacement division. «We have enjoyed visiting ballparks across the country this summer and educating fans on the importance of joint health.»
Lastly, as part of its «Own the Walk» charitable program, Stryker will donate $1 to K9s For Warriors – the nation’s largest provider of service dogs to American veterans living with military-related trauma – for every walk issued to a batter during the regular season. Stryker has been a committed partner of K9s For Warriors since 2015, having sponsored 31 service dogs to date — the largest number by any corporate partner.
Learn How To Get Back In The Game
As the Las Vegas area manages through COVID-19, it is still important for people to learn about joint health and potential treatments to consider. In addition to the game day events, local orthopaedic surgeons will be back at Las Vegas Ballpark on Saturday, September 18, to host an educational seminar teaching fans about joint health and the latest treatment options, including Mako SmartRobotics™ robotic-arm assisted surgery and other non-surgical options.
