OrthoSensor of Sunrise making waves with "smart" orthopedics

JaypierceH1raz21_St_56Covering entrepreneurship in South Florida is so interesting, particularly because of the diversity of industries found in our region and because every week we come across companies that have quietly made significant traction and flown under the radar.   OrthoSensor, a small Sunrise company that has raised $42 million in venture funding, fits that bill. Launched in 2008, OrthoSensor already has one device in beta and several others in late stages of development. It makes "smart" devices that help guide surgeons in joint replacements, improving outcomes and reducing costs. Under the direction of CEO Jay Pierce (pictured above in a photo by Miami Herald's Charlie Trainor Jr.), OrthoSensor has products in the pipeline that would stay in the body and continue to monitor functions for the doctors. The Miami Herald has never written about the company, which now has about 30 employees, in any significant way -- until today. Hope you find it interesting too.
