Research

The following may further your understanding of the Keller Funnel® and the benefits it may provide.

 

Surgeon's Surveys

For the past three years, Keller Medical has underwritten a third-party survey to ask surgeons about their experience using the Funnel.  Participants include surgeons who have used the Funnel for less than a year to surgeons who have consistently used the Funnel for more than 3 years.  Below are a few results highlights from all three surveys:

 

Easier to Place Implants

Nearly every respondent, at 97%, reported that the Keller Funnel® made the delivery of silicone implants in breast augmentation procedures easier than the traditional finger insertion method.

 

Recommend to their Peers

98% reported that they will have or have already recommended the Funnel to a peer.

 

Shorter Surgical Time

85% of the total physician respondents reported on average that the Funnel reduces their procedure time by 5 minutes or more; whereas 54% of doctors who frequently use the Funnel report saving between 10-20+ minutes per procedure.

 

Adoption Rate Using the Funnel

53% of surgeons, regardless of how long they have been using the Funnel, report using it on all of their silicone breast augmentation procedures.  86% of these respondents have used the Funnel in their practice for 2 or more years.  Of that group using the Funnel for more than 2 years, 65% reported they use the device on all silicone breast augmentation procedures.

 

Easier to Use

97% reported they find it easier to deliver silicone gel implants using the Keller Funnel®.

 

Reconstructive Procedures

53% of respondents use the Keller Funnel® in their reconstruction procedures, with 20% using it in all of their reconstruction procedures.

Keller Funnel® Reduces Insertion Force By Over 95%

As the bar graph below illustrates, the traditional finger push method requires over 27 pounds of force to deliver a 400 cc silicone implant through a 3.5 cm incision. The Keller Funnel® reduces that force by over 95% to only 0.64 pounds of force.
