Project Description

A Non Surgical Treatment for Ear Drum Repair

Ear drum perforations cause hearing loss and can be a source of infections especially if a patient wants to swim. 170 thousand ear drum repair operations are performed every year in the US and many patients opt not to have surgery because of the pain and inconvenience. We have developed a non surgical treatment that can regenerate the ear drum, so the patient does not have to have surgery, that will be tested in a human clinical trial in the coming years.
