Kearney Orthopedic & Sports Medicine is the first in Nebraska to offer patients VERASENSE™, a disposable sensor-assisted technology, for primary and revision total knee replacement.
During surgery, your surgeon temporarily inserts VERASENSE between the components of the knee implant. As the knee is taken through a full range of motion, the sensor wirelessly sends data to help the surgeon make important decisions regarding soft tissue balance and to customize the implant position. Once the implant position is stabilized, the sensor is removed and replaced with a permanent implant.
Patients whose knees were balanced using VERASENSE Sensor-Assisted TKR have shown significant improvements over patients whose knees were left unbalanced. Some of those benefits include:
- Less pain
- Quicker return to normal activity
- Improved knee function
