For more than three decades, the annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference (MBCC) has brought together surgical, medical and radiation oncologists and the institutions and innovators that support them to advance all aspects of patient care in a rapidly changing environment.
The MarginProbe team is proud to be part of this year’s gathering at MBCC 2017. Advancing the standard of care for breast cancer patients through MarginProbe’s RF spectroscopy platform proven to help surgeons identify positive margins real-time during the initial lumpectomy procedure. We look forward to reconnecting with colleagues and creating new relationships with the surgeons on the front lines of care for breast cancer patients next week in Miami.
“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. 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.” Dr. Jeffrey Falk, St. John Providence
“I use the MarginProbe right in the operating room,” said Dr. Friedlander. “If it tells me I need to remove additional tissue from any of those edges on the tissue, we can do it right at that time. This significantly increases the chances of getting good margins on the first surgery. I’ve definitely been able to save patients from a second surgery using the MarginProbe, no question.” Dr. Melanie Friedlander, South Bay Surgeons
