Event Details: 

Every year in the United States, over 750,000 children undergo tympanostomy tube surgery to address recurrent ear infections or persistent fluid in the middle ear. The vast majority of these procedures are conducted under general anesthesia, incurring the costs of the operating-room environment and exposing children to risks associated with general anesthetic agents. Tusker Medical is developing a suite of pediatric-focused technologies designed to enable placement of tubes in the comfort of an office environment, thus avoiding general anesthetics.
