“If cancer is found on the margin after review of the final pathology specimen in the laboratory, it implies a number of things. First of all, the surgeon has to sit down and tell the patient, we didn’t get it all. We still have cancer in the breast, because if we have cancer on the margin, there is going to be cancer residual in the breast. So that means the surgeon now has to tell the patient…”

“When I first heard about MarginProbe intra-operative margin assessment device, I was so excited. I begged the company to let me participate in their U.S. clinical trial. I think it’s the biggest advancement in breast cancer surgery in a generation.”

“Well, when I have to tell a patient that the margins are not adequate and another procedure is required, I’m really disappointed too. Even though I think back and can think that I couldn’t have done anything differently, it really is very disappointing and it is a difficult conversation to have with a patient.”
