A SIMPLE, DOUBLE-SIDED BROCHURE DESIGNED TO INFORM YOUR PATIENTS ABOUT YOUR USE OF THE KELLER FUNNEL®2 IN THEIR RECONSTRUCTION PROCEDURE
We have noticed a definite uptick in the amount of podium time being given to the use of the Keller Funnel®2 in breast reconstruction procedures, and want to provide a resource designed to provide information to your patients about why you use the Funnel in those procedures.
This simple, double-sided brochure explains some of the benefits, including a “No-TouchTM” delivery, that surgeons want to provide to their patients, regardless of the type of reconstruction procedure they receive that utilizes silicone gel implants.
The brochures are available in bundles of 25 or 50, and are no charge to receive, if requested with your Funnel order. The brochures may be ordered separately, either from our website, Point-of-Sale Resources Page, or by calling 772.219.9993 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will be charged for the shipping only.
PATIENT EDUCATION ANIMATION IS NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER ON THE POINT-OF-SALE RESOURCES PAGE!
Introduced last spring, our brief animation, which explains to your patients how the Keller Funnel works, in a non-graphic or surgical video way, is growing in popularity. 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 created the animation with your patients and their families in mind.
The 3 minute animation is the perfect addition to your consult or waiting rooms, and may be used on your website, or any electronic media you share with your patients.
How Can You Receive the Animation?
We have added the option to order the animation as an mp4 file on our Point-of-Sale Resources page, where you can select one of three options:
- A memory stick with the mp4 loaded onto it
- A DVD
- Have the mp4 file sent to you via DropBox
Additionally, you can also find the animation on the Keller Funnel YouTube channel, which you may download to your own computers and systems as an mp4 file.
Patients who are browsing the Patient portion of the KF2 website will see it under the “See It In Action” tab as well as on the Patient home page. 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 KF®2 YouTube channel.
ARE YOU ON THE “LIST” AND DO YOU HAVE “THE SEAL”?
We have made 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 to help patients find surgeons who use the funnel in their area. Be sure to include all locations, and surgeons at your practice who use the funnel.
Have you performed at least 20 procedures using the Keller Funnel? Have you viewed and completed the Product Use & Prep Video & Review? Are you interested in letting your patients know about this accomplishment? Do you have the Funnel Certification Seal? Why not? The Certification Seal is a badge of distinction, and sets you apart from other surgeons as one who is skilled in the use of the funnel. Patients do their research and are often looking for those with specific accreditations.
Do you teach about the Funnel to your peers, residents or fellows? We recognize the efforts to take time from your practice to get up on the podium, in the surgery theater or classroom, and are honored to provide you with this badge acknowledging your sharing of knowledge.
We will display your Funnel Certification Seal and Partners In Education Advocate badge next to your listing on the Doctor Locator, and send you high resolution artwork and coding to add the badge(s) to your website and for use in any printed materials. Show off your qualifications! For information on how to receive either of these badges, or if you need assistance with speaker materials, please contact Michele VonGerichten, Director of Marketing.
If you have any questions or need assistance in downloading the Animation or any portion of the Patient Education sections or materials, please contact us.
