Welcome to Episurf's 9th newsletter!
Welcome to our 9th quarterly newsletter! 
These are challenging times, and we are deeply grateful to our friends in the healthcare community bravely battling the Corona virus. It is a natural consequence of this crisis that elective surgeries need to be postponed, which of course we fully support.
Episurf Medical recently completed a financing round, preparing the company for additional clinical trials and continued commercialisation. In recent weeks, we have seen positive early results from two important clinical trials in Europe. These results further reinforce our view that the Episealer® knee implant technology is an ideal treatment solution for middle-aged patients suffering from severe knee pain but not yet ready for total knee replacement. In this newsletter, you can read more about recent events at our company.
To date, about 700 patients in Europe have been treated with Episealer implants, with very promising clinical results, in some cases for longer than seven years. Our company is developing well, and more and more patients can benefit from our implant technology. We are looking forward to staying in touch.
