IQ Surgical is a customer-centric organization, focused on marketing orthopedic devices for surgical procedures in trauma, spine, arthroplasty, and soft tissue reconstruction. Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, our mission is to find the best ways to serve all those we interact with, including patients, medical professionals and device manufactures. Founded in 2008, IQ has consistently stood at the forefront of new technology and procedures. For the last eight years IQ has developed the Oklahoma market, with substantial growth. Cayenne Medical’s AperFix device, IQ’s first product at launch, is the only multi-ligament system with rigid fixation. This product has remained successful for IQ for nearly a decade. With regards to Trauma, IQ is proud of a long parternsership with TriMed. TriMed is a leading innovator of advanced fixation technologies in the field of orthopedics. The company specializes in small fragment fracture fixation and holds numerous patents within this field. TriMed’s products have distribution all around the world.

Similarly, IQ has been at the top of arthroplasty since 2010. For the last six years IQ has grown the OmniPlasty robotic knee placement brand over 20% year-over- year. Via 3D bone morphing, OMNIPlasty gives the surgeon flexibility to fine-tune adjustments in real time during the procedure. This successful growth is in large part due to a strong product offering, but it also speaks to the talented team that makes up the IQ brand. IQ has recently reached into new arenas like spinal biologics, including Amnion and Spine Stimulation. Both products require a strong clinical foundation in spinal anatomy and the mode in which bone remodels and regenerates. Our product portfolio includes all forms of therapy, as well as DME and post-operative care.

IQ Surgical remains one of only a handful of healthcare distributors with a corporate organizational structure. IQ maintains a diverse full-time staff, with specialists in logistics, sales, and service. This allows our sales consultants to fully engage in their craft of building relationships and growing the brand. Since 2008, IQ has completed more than 12,000 surgical procedures.

IQ Surgical strives to stay ahead of new technological advances and welcomes new concepts across all portfolios.
