Company Updates


    Device allows breast cancer patients to assist in their reconstructive process

    A new medical device is allowing breast cancer patients to take an active role in the reconstruction procedure. "Whoever created this, I love you," said Rhonda Bayrami, breast cancer patient. 53-year-old Bayrami welcomes any good news after breast cancer, and a bilateral mastectomy.


    New Device Can Be Life-Changing For Breast Cancer Patients

    During the week of Thanksgiving, Samantha Blanco did not feel right; something was amiss. So she decided to go to the doctor. "When I went to have the mammogram, I already knew that I had breast cancer," Blanco said. "I just knew." She was right.

    I have been working at AirXpanders full-time (More than a year)


    Awesome people; great product focused on helping women regain control over their breast reconstruction post mastectomy; lots of interesting projects going on.


    So much to do! Moving from a pre-commercial business to commercial business takes hard work and there are often competing priorities (they are all important!).

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on top priorities. Keep distractions to a minimum.
