Zimmer® Persona™ Knee: The Personalized Knee System

The Zimmer Persona Knee ushers in a new era of personalization in total knee arthroplasty. Persona makes knee replacement more personalized than ever by focusing on the unique needs of each patient, surgeon and institution.

We used our experience as the leading orthopaedic implant company to develop the Persona experience. We worked with 50 of the world’s most respected orthopaedic surgeons who implanted Persona knees in patients with many different types of anatomy. We matched that to our Zimmer Bone Atlas, with analytics from 1500 different bone types from 26 different ethnicities. We interviewed many doctors and patients.

The result is the Zimmer Persona experience. Our goal was to come as close as possible to the remarkable mechanics of the human body. Until now, there were limitations because everyone’s bones are different.

The Persona anatomic tibia is only one of the components to the Persona Knee System’s No Compromise approach to total knee replacement. The Persona tibial component is uniquely shaped to facilitate:

  • 92% bone coverage with proper rotation1
  • 45% less internal/external rotational variability than symmetric tibias2
