From Joe Burnett, President & CEO:
The closing of one year and opening of another provides an important interlude to take stock, and celebrate our team's 2021 accomplishments.
On the clinical front, last month, ClearPoint's global clinical specialist team supported our 5,000th procedure, only 11 months after completing our 4,000th. We are both humbled and honored to serve as an extension of our customers' teams, be they Neurosurgeons, MRI technologists, OR nurses, scrub techs, hospital administrators, or pharmaceutical partners.
With regards to our innovation pipeline, we have put funds from our February 2021 capital raise to good use ensuring all development activities are on track. A key component to our innovation strategy is to involve a diverse group of Neurosurgeons in our product development process. In Q4, we have capitalized on the return of in-person medical conferences to obtain important hands-on feedback and insights on our pipeline.
In Q1 of this year we set a goal to exit the COVID-19 pandemic in a better position than we started. Although a definitive exit seems elusive, I am proud to see our team continue to relentlessly execute on our strategy, partnership development, and portfolio expansion.
Wishing you and yours a very happy and safe holiday season. We look forward to a tremendous 2022!
