Ear Tubes Under Local Anesthesia
Dr. Aguila is one of a few surgeons in the U.S. now offering TULA, tubes under local anesthesia. In this video he demonstrates how the procedure works in the doctor’s office without the cost or inconvenience of a hospital or general anesthesia. TULA is a simple, affordable and accessible option for kids and adults who need ear tubes as a result of frequent ear infections.
Dr. Demetrio Aguila demonstrates in this video:
We are going to show you exactly how TULA works with this little model patient that we have here now
The procedure is simple. This is the device that
we used to put the tube in. This has a tube in it right now.
I am going to show you how that works.
Normally I have magnification loops on which allow me to see a higher magnification.
I look in there after the child has had his or her ears appropriately anesthetized. They are made nice and numb I put the device in here like this and I press the button boom tube’s in that’s, it all done!
This training model has in it a simulated eardrum and there you can see the tube right in the simulated eardrum. TULA is simple, easy, convenient, affordable
