“Our overall quarterly growth, whilst penalized by the decrease in Knee exports, shows a continuous improvement in Jazz® in terms of both its adoption by surgeons and its share of the Company’s product mix. We have laid the foundation of our current growth by intensifying our efforts regarding the recognition of the clinical value of JAZZ® and the comprehensive nature of our product range. Lastly, we have treated almost 4,000 patients and with more than 20,000 Jazz® implants since its launch. For 2017, we remain confident in our ability to sustain continued growth in Jazz® revenue and establish it as a benchmark in spine surgery. Regarding the Knee segment, we expect activity to stabilize during the second quarter of 2017.”
