SISTA is an exciting new program being driven and developed nationally by our Clinical Nurse and Integration Specialist teams.

The SISTA Perioperative Nurses Program has been designed to increase nurse knowledge and expertise on Stryker products whilst promoting Stryker’s branding and reputation with great education and support.

Our vision is to develop strong long term links with nursing staff and instil confidence for them in our products. SISTA courses cover all product divisions and are focused on incorporating Stryker into your everyday world


I have had the privilege of attending SISTA workshops on hip, knee and ASM navigation. These courses have proven invaluable to the requirements of working in the orthopaedic perioperative environment.

The courses are welcoming and they cater to all levels of attendees. I have found them to be well structures and organised. Having the theoretical talks followed by hands on in-service has helped reinforce my knowledge, skills and confidence in Orthopaedics.

Since participating in the courses, I now feel competent and confident to actively select prosthetic implants required for the procedure. I can now quickly discern how to read the details on the prosthetic packaging and confirm with the surgeon the correct implant details.

Attending the SISTA workshop at Stryker was one of the most helpful and educational programmes I've attended. Not only did the day help me in my everyday practice but also my confidence to scrub for navigated knees. I found a deeper understanding of knee replacements from the presentations, but also the practical aspects of putting instruments together and why they are used at each stage.

We were also taught the importance of how to position the navigation computers so that we can set it up, which I had a go at this week at work with great success.  Being fairly new to orthopaedics it's really difficult to gain a better understanding of instrumentation and the sequence of the knee, but at the SISTA day it all made so much sense! I am very grateful for the opportunity to go and I would recommend this to all nurses no matter how senior or junior as I believe there’s something  there for everyone to learn.
