Removal of Grommets

Some extruded grommets stay in the ear canal on or close to the ear drum. Subsequent wax build up can cause blockage and hearing difficulties. These can be removed by micro suction or with micro forceps.

While most grommets naturally extrude from the ear drum, it may sometimes be necessary to have the grommet removed by an ENT doctor. This is a simple procedure, which is carried out under topical local anaesthetic, using specially designed small instruments. The small hole that is left behind should normally heal up completely in a few weeks.
