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 

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 system, 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 in a median procedure time of 5 minutes.
