Welcome to Episurf's 7th newsletter!
Welcome to our quarterly newsletter! 
A couple of months have passed since our last newsletter, and it has been an intense period. We have arranged our third Masterclass, and we have signed the first study sites in the US Clinical trial that we are starting. Clinical data has been presented at several clinical conferences, and several Episealer surgeries have taken place across Europe. We are pleased about the progress that we are making, and as the patient population continues to grow, our confidence in our technology continues to grow as well. In addition to providing significant improvements in pain and other relevant scores, we see that the Episealer implant can help patients in a large age interval. There are quick clinical improvements, patients return to daily activities quite rapidly, and the results seem to hold up for a very long time. All this makes us very comfortable with our technology, and we look forward to continuing to establish our position in the treatment algorithm together with our customers.
