The Keller Funnel™2 is the next generation implant delivery device that provides exceptionally gentle and quick delivery of all silicone gel prosthesis.
Over the years, many of you have requested materials or information explaining how the Keller Funnel works to your patients, in a non-graphic or surgical video way. What is “routine” viewing for those in the medical field is often too startling or graphic for patients and their families.
We listened to your suggestions and designed this animation with your patient in mind. It can be found under the “See It In Action” tab as well as on the Patient home page. This animation takes the patient through each step of how you prepare the funnel, and how simple/gentle the insertion process is. For those who wish to view surgical videos as well, under the “See It In Action” tab, there are links to the finger vs funnel video as well as other surgical videos housed on the KFTM2 YouTube channel.
As you know, we recently expanded our Patient website to compliment the design, colors and graphics contained in the Patient education materials – to appeal to the patient while providing a bit of information about why his / her surgeon uses the Funnel. Sections within the site include “What Is The KF2”, “See It In Action”, “Find A Doctor” and “Useful Links.”
HOW CAN YOU DOWNLOAD THE ANIMATION?
It will be housed on the Keller Funnel YouTube channel, which you may download to your own computers and systems as an mp4 file. We are working on developing an app, and once it is available, will let you know where to find it – and download it to your devices.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
We are making it even easier for patients to find surgeons in their area who use the funnel by adding a “Patients” button on the Keller Funnel home page.
From there, they will be able to access the Doctor Locator (updated to include searches by state or zip code). If you are not on the Doctor Locator, please click here to download the authorization form and send it back to us! This is a complimentary service we provide to help patients find surgeons who use the funnel in their area. Additionally, we will display your Funnel Certification Seal and Partners In Education Advocate badge next to your listing. Show off your qualifications! For information on how to receive either of these badges, please contact us.
Our Patient Education Brochures and Brochure Holder, are available to you free of charge. Bundled in packs of 25 each, these are the perfect accessory for your waiting or consult rooms. We are happy to ship them with your funnel orders, or if you prefer, order them separately (and simply pay for the shipping). If you would like to order these, please contact Customer Service or access the form here.
If you have any questions or need assistance in downloading the Animation or any portion of the Patient Education sections or materials, please contact Michele VonGerichten.

The KF™2 picks up where the original left off. I experienced better handling, even with textured implants; a clearer view for placement; and an incredibly smooth delivery.
Dr. Michael Ciaravino, Houston, Texas
This new version of the funnel is unbelievably good with textured implants. I don’t know how you would make it any better.
