CEO AND CO-FOUNDER, TYMPANOGEN
Tympanogen, Inc. develops innovative ear, nose, and throat devices based on our proprietary gel technology. Our lead product, Perf-Fix™, will transform traditional tympanoplasty procedures into a quick office visit.
Perf-Fix can be applied in an office setting within 10 minutes, without general anesthesia or margin freshening. This gel patch encourages regeneration of the full tympanic membrane structure at the same high success rates of traditional tympanoplasty.
Tympanogen was founded in 2014 by a dynamic and energetic team of engineers and physicians dedicated to simplifying medical procedures and reducing healthcare costs. The company operates out of the VA Bio+Tech Park in Richmond, VA.
