“This quarter’s record revenue result reflects the growing demand for our best-in-class incontinence products,” said Raymond W.

Our unique hydrogel generated another record revenue quarter and in fiscal year 2022, Bulkamid has been used to treat over 50,000 women with stress urinary incontinence.”
Cohen continued, “In 2022, in addition to strong commercial execution, we continued to make progress on several key initiatives, including our direct-to-consumer advertising campaign and expansion of our in-house manufacturing capabilities that has benefited gross margin. We look forward to FDA approval of our fourth-generation rechargeable sacral neuromodulation system in 1Q23 and remain confident that our commitment to innovation, quality and providing physicians and patients strong clinical support will continue to drive market expansion and advance Axonics on its path to incontinence market leadership.”
