Episurf Granted Additional U.S. Patent

By Julie A. Vetalice

Episurf Medical received an additional Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent, “Implant specific drill bit in surgical kit for cartilage repair,” covers the drill included in the instrument kit used to implant the Episealer® individualized knee joint implant.

The company has approximately 140 patents and patent applications worldwide, distributed over 20 patent families.

“This is a result of our continuous improvements in usability, where we have merged two instruments into one. We hear from surgeons how much they appreciate the Episealer® surgical instruments and the quick and smooth surgical technique. That is the result of detailed engineering work and patents like this,” said Katarina Flodström, COO.
