It has been a very busy and exciting year for the Dune Medical Team. It is with enthusiasm that we carry the progress made in 2016 into the New Year, continue to grow, and help physicians know that they “got it all” during lumpectomy surgery. As this year comes to a close, we want to share the successes of the 4th quarter that have paved the way for the fantastic year to come.
10,000 patients receiving the MarginProbe advantage
As you may know, with MarginProbe, surgeons have a greater chance of getting clean margins during the first lumpectomy surgery. We are very excited that as of Q4 2016, over 10,000 patients have been given that advantage, with that number growing every day! You can read more about our 10k milestone here.
The Death of Impossibility: Inspiration from Health Connect South 2016
In late September, we were honored to be invited to participate on a panel with Nancy Paris, President of the Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education, and Marc O’Connor, COO for Curant Health at Health Connect South 2016. Our discussion ranged widely, from innovation to collaboration in care to access, patient engagement and ‘who is going to pay for all of this?’

Latest Surgeon Spotlight – Dr. Jeffrey Falk
In 2016 we set out to shine a spotlight on the surgeons who partner with us to help ensure that breast cancer patients avoid a second lumpectomy surgery. It is because of these champion physicians all over the globe, that we are able to do what we do. With that being said, we added a new surgeon spotlight to the site! Dr. Jeffrey Falk shared with us his data and stories of MarginProbe success.
“After looking at our preliminary data we’ve found MarginProbe has significantly reduced our incidence of a positive margin. That means that I’m taking patients much less frequently back to the operating room for re-excisions now,” said Falk. “In fact, with our first 36 cases using MarginProbe, we looked at our data and, our re-excision rate was 2.8%, which is far, far less than what you’d expect.” Read the full spotlight here.
