Winner of First Prize in the Chicago Health Tech Challenge 2014!
Thermatome Corporation has developed a method and technology to treat breast cancer; using heat to eliminate radiation following surgery.
Our technology consists of two parts: a disposable balloon containing a heating coil and a control system. At the time of surgery (lumpectomy), the balloon is placed at the lumpectomy site and filled with saline. Using Thermatome’s controller, the saline is heated for ~10 minutes to destroy any remaining cancer cells around the site of surgery. This treatment is called Thermatome Thermal Therapy.
We have developed a prototype which has been successfully tested experimentally and clinically, reported in the International Journal of Hyperthermia (2009 Feb;25(1):47-55). Unique to Thermatome Thermal Therapy, the device is portable, easy to use and requires only standard electrical connection.
With your help we will be able to prepare for a clinical trial and to initiate FDA clearance. Your support could help to bring a safe, effective and less expensive treatment for breast cancer patients worldwide.
President & Founder: Dr. Kambiz Dowlatshahi is a world renowned breast surgeon based in Chicago, IL. Dr. Dowlatshahi has developed many minimally invasive techniques pushing the boundaries of breast cancer surgery today. He developed Thermatome Thermal Therapy out of need to better treat his patients after surgery. His vision for advanced treatments and passion for patient care drives Thermatome as a company.
Chief Operating Officer & Founder: I, Christopher Valadez, joined Dr. Dowlathshahi over 15 years ago challenged with bringing advanced surgical techniques from the lab to clinical settings. Together we have pushed the boundaries of science and innovation with special focus on breast cancer care. Having witnessed first-hand the effects of radiation, I believe deeply that Thermatome Thermal Therapy is a safe and extremely effective option to treat breast cancer after surgery.
