Welcome to Episurf's 3rd newsletter!
Welcome to our third quarterly newsletter!

Episurf can look back on a busy second quarter with several highlights. In this newsletter, you can read all about the international meetings we attended and our recent Episealer Masterclass (including the presentation of our latest clinical data). We will also be looking forward to some exciting events happening later this year.

We hope you enjoy reading our updates. If you want to learn more about Episurf and our Episealer technology, do not hesitate to get in touch with us!
Among all cartilage lesions, there is a group who does no longer respond to conservative and/or biological treament options and often - due to the patient's focal lesion, the limited size of the lesion or younger age - a unilateral or total knee arthroplasty is not an option either.

Episurf Medical offers your patients a proven and effective solution for their knee pain and helps them get back to their former active way of life!

A succesfull Episealer Masterclass
On 14 and 15 June, Episurf held its 2nd Episealer Masterclass in Sigtuna (Stockholm), Sweden. An international faculty guided the delegates through the history and current status of knee cartilage research and how Episealer has become a proven and accepted treatment option for patient with focal chondral and osteochondral lesions in the knee. Dr Pieter Emans, University Hospital of Maastricht (Netherlands), presented the latest update of the clinical follow-up.

'Once again we noticed that the concept of an Episealer Masterclass is very appreciated and we will develop the concept further to give all delegates a state-of-the-art experience to learn more about cartilage and Episealer. In order to meet the demand and give more delegates the opportunity to attend, we are already planning our next masterclass' says Pål Ryfors, CEO at Episurf Medical.
