The first procedure utilizing the Tula System, an in-office solution for the placement of ear tubes, was performed on May 28th, 2020 by California Head & Neck Specialist’s very own Dr. Ritvik Mehta! Dr. Mehta shared how this new system will greatly improve what ENTs can offer their patients in a recent interview.
“This personally hits home as my daughter had ear tube placement performed in the operating room,” explained Dr. Mehta. “Even though I’m in a position to know exactly what to expect, it was a stressful event. I’m genuinely excited to be able to perform the same ear tube procedure, but in an office setting where children and families may avoid exposure to the risks and stresses of general anesthesia – fasting, separation and after effects. This is a significant improvement to what we as ENTs can offer our patients.”
