Congresswoman Lucy McBath Advocates for Medical Device Innovation in the State of Georgia with a Visit to Dune Medical Devices

By The Associated Press

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 30, 2019--

was thrilled to host Congresswoman Lucy McBath in a recent visit to their Alpharetta office. McBath is a member of the United States House of Representatives from Georgia's 6th congressional district. Since joining Congress in January of this year, she has shown support for multiple bills seeking to lower costs of healthcare for patients and help advance medical innovation. This includes her co-sponsorship of the bipartisan Protect Medical Innovation Bill (HR 2207) which would permanently repeal the 2.3% excise tax on medical device sales revenue. Repealing this tax will, instead, allow those dollars to be re-invested toward innovation and improving patient access to important medical technologies. Dune Medical applauds McBath’s leadership on these issues.

“It was fantastic getting to learn more about new and innovative technologies that are being developed in our own backyard,” Congresswoman McBath explained. “These technologies are important in improving patient care and access.”

Dune Medical has developed MarginProbe®, a device that identifies cancerous tissue in real-time during lumpectomy surgeries. Through their proprietary RF spectroscopy technology, MarginProbe® indicates whether there is any remaining cancer tissue on the removed breast specimen and provides immediate feedback to the breast surgeon during the procedure, allowing identified residual cancerous tissue to be removed during the patient’s initial breast surgery.

Congresswoman McBath added, “As a two-time breast cancer survivor and someone who has undergone two lumpectomies, I appreciated the opportunity to meet with the Dune Medical team to learn more about MarginProbe®.”

MarginProbe® is the only FDA approved device for during breast conservation surgery and has been proven in approximately 20,000 cases, reducing re-excision rates .

“We were excited to show Congresswoman McBath the peace-of-mind that MarginProbe® has provided to breast cancer patients,” explained Lori Chmura, CEO of Dune Medical Devices. “As the representative for the district where our office is headquartered and a two-time breast cancer survivor herself, she understands the importance of medical innovation and is an advocate for women’s healthcare. We are grateful for the passionate support of Congresswoman McBath in helping to overcome obstacles and improve access to care for unique solutions that lower costs and improve patient outcomes.”

Dune Medical was also able to demonstrate future applications of the technology, including , with Congresswoman McBath. Dune Medical looks forward to working with Congresswoman McBath in the future to help make innovative technologies like MarginProbe® that aim to improve the current standard of care available to every patient.

“Imagine not having to wonder, did we get it all?”

At Dune Medical Devices, we believe in reducing the anxiety that waiting for pathology results places on a patient and their families. Our solutions, which are developed on a first-of-its-kind RF Spectroscopy platform, can differentiate cancerous from healthy tissue based on electromagnetic properties, making it possible for patients and physicians to answer the question, “did we get it all?” For more information, contact .
