Dune Medical Devices’ proprietary tissue characterization technology utilizing Radiofrequency (RF) Spectroscopy, is a ground-breaking solution to identifying microscopic residual cancer at the surface of the tissue to give surgeons another tool to help identify all the cancerous tissue in the operating room. Dune’s first medical device, the MarginProbe System, achieved FDA approval in 2013 for use in breast cancer lumpectomy procedures. Numerous peer reviewed publications have demonstrated a 50 - 79% reduction in re-excision with the use of MarginProbe.
“Breast conservation surgery is a first line surgical modality for most women facing a breast cancer diagnosis and MarginProbe improves the effectiveness and outcome of the surgery,” says Bond. “I look forward to playing an important role in optimizing Dune’s organizational performance and bringing a strategic focus as we expand our revolutionary technology platform to the diagnosis, surgery and therapy of other cancers.”
