  • 30th Japan Breast Disease Society

    Kadema Medical Center, Okinawa, Japan
    The event will be attended by Japanese doctors.

  • 8th International Oncoplastic Breast Surgery Symposium
    February 26-27, 2024
    Chiba, Japan
    This event will be attended by 25 breast surgery experts from Asia, the U.S., and Europe, who are thought leaders in their respective countries.

Educational sessions at the breast conferences will focus on nonsurgical tumor ablation and will include clinical data, indication-specific information, pathology analysis, and more.

"We are very grateful to Dr. Fukuma for leading educational events and sharing with other doctors his vast experience using ProSense® to help women achieve better outcomes," stated IceCure CEO Eyal Shamir. "The number of ProSense® user-initiated educational events and published studies is generating increasing momentum for the adoption and wider use of cryoablation globally."

Dr. Fukuma commented, "I'm always pleased to engage with my colleagues in Japan and internationally to share my insight and long-term experience with cryoablation. I've used ProSense® with hundreds of breast cancer patients, who have had excellent efficacy and safety outcomes. Based on my first-hand experience as well as published studies, there is no reason why cryoablation should not be the standard of care in early-stage breast cancer."

Dr. Dennis Holmes, a breast cancer surgeon and key opinion leader with over 50 peer reviewed journal publications of his innovative work, commented, "My mission as a breast cancer surgeon and cancer researcher is to raise the standard of care. Using ProSense®️ for breast cancer cryoablation is part of my practice and an essential part of oncoplastic surgery, which combines breast conserving procedures with plastic surgical techniques to optimize results. I was pleased to participate in the educational session at the Oncoplastic Breast Surgery Symposium in Japan with Dr. Fukuma. It is only through innovation that we can continually improve the effectiveness, safety, and quality of breast cancer care for the benefit of those affected by the diagnosis."

ProSense® is currently pending regulatory approval in Japan.
