If you are struggling with earaches and repeated ear infections, you may have a condition commonly known as glue ear. Glue ear is a condition in which fluid builds behind the ear drum. We work with an ear, nose and throat (ENT) team that can support you with the insertion of grommets, which are small plastic or metal tubes to allow air into your ear and prevent further build up.

A speedy procedure to relieve painful symptoms

Following your initial consultation and examination, your Consultant will remove the fluid from your ear drum by suction before placing the small grommet into your ear. This is a very quick procedure, which usually takes around 20 minutes, meaning you are free to go home the same day and carry on with your usual activities.
