Episurf Medical’s 50th Episealer® implant in Belgium

Episurf Medical announces that the 50th implantation of the Episealer® knee implant in Belgium will take place in the near future. Episurf Medical started on a small scale in Belgium, working with a limited number of surgeons. The company’s technology has been very well received by key surgeons in the country and Belgium is one of the company's prioritised markets.

“I am excited to experience an increased acceptance and demand for our Episealer® implants. We have reimbursement arranged in Belgium and are now also able to show positive clinical outcome to surgeons. This is very important as surgeons and patients are looking for proven medical solutions”, says Tania Bol, Regional Manager for Episurf Medical in Belgium and the Netherlands.

“Following a start on a small scale in Belgium, we now see an increasing usage and demand. In combination with positive patient outcomes, this is a very satisfying development in Belgium”, comments Professor Leif Ryd, Senior Medical Advisor, Episurf Medical.
