About a million ear tube surgeries costing 2.7 billion dollars are performed on children every year in North America alone. That means cutting a child’s healthy eardrum. We aim to replace these surgeries with a simple device, called a stent, like a heart stent which keeps arteries open. Our eStent drains fluid from the middle ear without surgery - no cutting!
The Doya eStent is an active stent that can be open and closed upon the body mechanism, and allows fluids to drain through the ET.
