Episurf Medical was granted an additional patent in Australia, relative to a drill bit used to implant the company's patient-specific Episealer® joint implant.
The company continues to build protection for its IP portfolio. Episurf's first Australia patent was granted in 3Q16, covering a surgical drilling guide that supports depth adjustments for use in implantation of patient-specific joint implants. The Episealer device passed a 150-procedure milestone in the following quarter.
