“I am delighted with this achievement especially considering that we have tightened the inclusion criteria for new accounts to ensure that surgeons can begin doing Episealer® procedures immediately, thereby driving account productivity. This performance indicates our direct sales strategy across the major European geographies is working and demonstrates an acceptance amongst surgeons to address the treatment gap between biologics and arthroplasty with a patient specific Episealer® implant“, says Rosemary Cunningham Thomas, CEO of Episurf Medical.
During 2016 Episurf Medical will continue to enlarge and strengthen its sales presence via an active recruitment process in Germany and the UK.
“I am confident that Episurf Medical’s expanding European footprint combined with growing patient demand for innovative cartilage treatments will drive accelerated surgical adoption of the Episealer®implant technology in 2016 and beyond. With five patient specific products in the portfolio including its first digital product, Epioscopy™, key sales managers in our main markets and a growing body of clinical evidence, Episurf Medical is well positioned to compete on a global scale in the years to come,” says Rosemary Cunningham Thomas.
