Plastic Surgeons Affirm Keller Funnel® Performance With 99% Satisfaction Rate

STUART, FL--For the third straight year, surgeons participated in an independent study to assess the performance of the KELLER FUNNEL® (, and the results showed that the implant delivery device continues to meet or exceed expectations, with 99% of surgeons reporting satisfaction.
