PionEar Technologies

Contemporary treatments for chronic ear infections fail in 40% of cases, resulting in hearing loss, pain, & unnecessary surgical procedures. PionEar has developed the first implant that efficiently delivers drugs directly to the middle & inner ear while preventing clogging and early extrusion, improving patient outcomes, & saving >$20B in medical costs. We have a pipeline portfolio of bioinspired devices to tackle other ear & hearing disorders, including hearing loss and eardrum rupture.
PionEar is revolutionizing the treatment of ear infections with minimally invasive, antifouling, drug delivery ear tube implants
