What Is Ear Lavage?

Ear lavage, also referred to as ear irrigation, is provided in order to get rid of excess earwax, cerumen, and foreign materials within the ear. This procedure may be needed if there is a blockage within the ear that could potentially cause damage. Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel at Health Direction Medical Center perform ear lavage procedures for patients who are experiencing symptoms of ear blockage, including pain and difficulty hearing. If you think you are experiencing ear blockage or believe there is a foreign object in your ear, you should contact one of our Chicago, IL locations to schedule a thorough ear evaluation.

How Is Ear Lavage Performed?

Prior to performing an ear lavage, a thorough examination of your ear will be performed. As an in-office procedure, ear lavage starts with the insertion of an otoscope to gain a better look at the inner ear. Next, a syringe-like tool will be used to insert a saline solution into the ear in order to flush out any foreign materials or excess earwax. If necessary, ear drops may also be provided to help alleviate any symptoms.
