Orthopedic Surgeon Performs First Smart Knee Implant in Central Arkansas

Hubbard Performs First Smart Knee Implant in Central Arkansas

orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Michael Hubbard, performs first smart knee implant in Central Arkansas.

Hubbard used Persona IQ®, the world’s first and only smart knee implant granted De Novo status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for total knee replacement surgery. Persona IQ combines their  knee implant, , with implantable sensor technology that measures range of motion, step count, walking speed and other gait metrics.

"If you're going to have a problem early, it's easier to get on top of that rather than waiting three months or six months or a year even," he said.

Now, if there is a problem, Hubbard can diagnose it quickly using the data collected from the knee.

Persona IQ features implantable sensor technology, similar to a pacemaker.  Once placed in the knee, Persona IQ® records and wirelessly transmits a wide range of gait data to a patient’s personal base station at home. The data are then securely delivered to a HIPAA compliant cloud-based platform and can be accessed by the patient and the surgeon.

“We are here to help you live your healthiest life," Hubbard said, "and technology is helping us accomplish that. We’re very excited to offer the first smart-knee replacement in Central Arkansas,,"

Dr. Michael Hubbard, DO, is an orthopedic surgeon in Hot Springs, AR. He is currently accepting new patients at .
