IRVINE, Calif., May 05, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axonics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AXNX), a global medical technology company that is developing and commercializing novel products for the treatment of bladder and bowel dysfunction, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

"We are pleased with this quarter’s revenue result considering the significant impact the Omicron surge had on elective procedures in January and February," said Raymond W. Cohen, chief executive officer of Axonics. "Sacral neuromodulation procedure volumes recovered nicely in March and continued to trend favorably in April. Bulkamid® generated yet another quarter of record revenue and we are delighted to report that over 32,000 women have had their stress urinary incontinence symptoms treated with Bulkamid from the time we acquired the product last year."

Cohen continued, "In April, we commenced the broad commercial launch of the Axonics F15, our newly developed, long-lived, recharge-free sacral neuromodulation system. Physician response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are confident this new recharge-free option will expand the sacral neuromodulation market while also accelerating the conversion of accounts to Axonics. We also recently launched our direct-to-consumer television advertising campaign, which aims to reduce stigma, increase awareness for Axonics therapies, and encourage women to consult and seek treatment from a physician who specializes in bladder and bowel dysfunction. With a full portfolio of incontinence solutions, increased public awareness for our innovative products, and a keen focus on execution, Axonics is well positioned to achieve its mission of treating more adults suffering from incontinence."
