Dr. Humphreys uses OrthoSensor’s advanced VERASENSE SENSOR-ASSISTED Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) technology during all his total knee replacements.
WHAT IS VERASENSE? Verasense is a wireless sensor-assisted technology used in total knee replacements. The disposable sensor transmits data about your knee during surgery, which enables Dr. Humphreys to use that data about your specific knee, to customize implant positioning and improve soft tissue balance.
As a result of using Verasense in total knee replacements, patients whose knees have been balanced through the use of Verasense show statistically significant improvements in joint function, pain, activity level and patient satisfaction. To find more, kindly visit the VERASENSE website or see the VERASENSE SENSOR-ASSISTED Total Knee Replacement Patient Brochure.
