“We are only scratching the surface of our addressable market, and we look forward to further market penetration. The key to achieving this is to have more clinical evidence published, which will lead to an improved operating environment, meaning that factors such as hospital approvals, surgeon confidence, reimbursement and patient awareness are improved.” – Episurf CEO Pål Ryfors
