Persona - The Personalized Knee Replacement
Zimmer Persona Knee - The Personalized Knee System
Zimmer is redefining knee arthroplasty and ushering in a new era of personalization with the introduction of the Persona Knee. The Persona System makes the most clinically successful knee replacement more personalized than ever by focusing on the unique needs of the patient, surgeon and institution.1
We used our leadership and knowledge of the natural movement of the knee to develop the Persona Knee. Working with more than 50 of the world’s most respected orthopaedic surgeons, and utilizing analytics from both genders and 1,500 different bone types from 26 different ethnicities, Zimmer was able to create the most anatomically accurate knee implant.
The result is the Persona Knee. Our goal was to come as close as possible to the remarkable mechanics of the human body…where form truly does follow function. Welcome to the Persona Knee – putting the person back in knee replacement.
Knee replacement implants have improved the lives of millions, and today knee replacement is one of the most successful medical device surgeries. More surgeons trust Zimmer NexGen Knee Replacements for their patients than any other total knee replacement surgery system. As the leading orthopaedic implant manufacturer, we have one overriding commitment: To restore mobility, alleviate pain and improve the quality of life for patients around the world.
Overcoming Limitations. Minimizing Compromises.
Until the Persona Knee, limitations in knee arthroplasty systems required surgeons to accept compromises, which have created surgical inefficiencies and posed challenges to realizing desired patient outcomes. The Persona Knee equips the surgeon with a comprehensive system that provides remarkable intraoperative flexibility.
The result is an implant system that addresses the unique needs of the patient and accommodates surgeon-specific preferences — all while empowering surgeons to minimize “trade-offs” and better optimize results.
Persona Knee features include:
- Innovative morphologic knee implant designs
- Comprehensive sizing with tighter increments
- Side-specific kinematics
- Differential conformity articulation
- Cruciate Retaining and Posterior Stabilized philosophies
