Introducing The Hummingbird
The launch of the Hummingbird represents a significant breakthrough in offering a minimally invasive approach that reduces trauma and safely enables the surgeon to place ear tubes in the office setting
Same Procedure. New Location.
Many otolaryngology procedures are moving out of the hospital, providing increased options for patients and ENT surgeons. The Hummingbird enables this shift for tympanostomy procedures, providing more procedural and scheduling control for the ENT Surgeon.

Precise & Efficient Features
The Hummingbird is designed to create an incision and place a PE tube in one single pass.
The Hummingbird device combines the separate steps of making a myringotomy, positioning the PE tube, and placing the tube using alligator forceps or picks. Using Preceptis’ patented One-Pass® technology, an incision is made using the cutting sheath and the tube is placed by scrolling back on the slider. A topical anesthetic helps numb the tympanic membrane and the entire procedure is completed efficiently in the office.
