Professional Ear Wax (Cerumen) Removal Services

Impacted Earwax Removal

Dr. Martinetti uses an ear, nose, and throat illuminated microscope to safely and comfortably remove excess or impacted ear wax (cerumen). Initially the external ear canal is carefully examined with an illuminated otoscope to determine if there is a need to remove ear wax. The patient is seated in a hydraulic chair with the head secure and comfortable on the soft headrest.

Dr. Martinetti will use an oil based lubricant to soften the ear wax prior to removing any impaction. The wax is removed with sterilized tools specialized loop curettes and alligator forceps. Suction is used as needed. Dr. Martinetti has been trained by an ear, nose, and throat surgeon in the removal of cerumen using the ENT operating microscope.
