Episurf Medical (Nasdaq: EPIS B) today announces that the first surgery with the ankle implant Episealer® Talus in Asia was performed on Friday. The company has previously communicated the scheduling of this surgery and can today provide additional information.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Wilson Li, Dr. MAN Shui-wah and Dr. Dennis Chan at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Hong Kong, assisted by Prof. Niek van Dijk, Clinical advisor to Episurf Medical, over video link.

The implant sat perfectly well into the defect, thanks to the customised patient specific guide that fitted the anatomy precisely, and the whole instrumentation including the osteotomy guide was very user friendly. Great technical support from the Episurf team throughout the interactive preoperative 3D planning session and also intraoperative online feedback!" says Dr. Wilson Li

“I am very proud of that this surgery could be performed, despite the challenges that the pandemic has created. I would like to congratulate Dr. Wilson Li and the team at Queen Elizabeth Hospital on this successful surgery. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the teams at Episurf and Pacific Medical Systems (Episurf’s distributor in Hong Kong) as well as Prof. van Dijk, for making this possible. We are looking forward to many more surgeries in Asia going forward” says Pål Ryfors, CEO Episurf Medical.
