Earworx Brunswick clinic offers a safe and effective earwax removal service for people suffering from excess or impacted earwax. Earworx has been offering gentle and professional removal of earwax since 2016 and is gradually expanding to open clinics around Australia. Our team of experienced ear health professionals use a technique called micro-suction and curettage, which is the preferred method of ear wax removal by Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialists.

She is a dedicated and compassionate nurse who loves working with patients from all walks of life to achieve the best health outcomes.
Prior to joining the Earworx team, Katrina was the Practice Nurse Team Leader at High Street Medical Centre, and a Registered Nurse at a Northern Sydney hospital. She has been responsible for a range of patient care activities over her career, and has now added earwax removal and ear care to her list of skills. All visitors to Earworx Brunswick will be in safe hands as Katrina carefully inspects their ears and gently removes excess earwax using micro-suction. She is also passionate about health education and is always happy to provide advice and guidance around how to best care for your ears from an earwax perspective.

Her calm and caring nature make her patients feel at ease, and her excellent communication skills ensure that all information about the Earworx procedure is conveyed in a clear, concise and age-appropriate way. As a local to the northern suburbs, Katrina loves working within her community and getting to know people as she provides care.
How the Earworx Procedure Works
It only takes 30 minutes to have clear, wax free ears with the Earworx procedure. Our methods are safe, effective, and preferred by experts in ear health.
Our professional and well trained staff visualise your ear canal using special glasses called ‘loupes’; a bright light with magnification, to determine whether or not the wax removal procedure is required.
We use micro-suction technology, which operates like a small vacuum to gently suction away excess ear wax and remove any blockages from the ear canal. The procedure is completely dry, making it safe and comfortable.

Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Whilst for the majority of the population, ear wax is removed automatically from the ear via a ‘self cleaning’ mechanism, impacted and excess earwax can be very uncomfortable and painful. In serious cases, it can even lead to dizziness and vertigo. Some of the common symptoms of excess earwax include a blocked feeling in the ears, loss of hearing, itching, and ringing in the ears. You may find wax does not clear from the ears
If you are suffering from impacted earwax, it could be because you are genetically predisposed to producing more wax than other people. You could also have narrow or hairy ear canals, which makes it more difficult for the wax to naturally migrate out of the ear.
Excess wax, if you are prone to build up, can be worsened by regularly swimming or diving, wearing earphones, earplugs or a hearing aid, spending a lot of time in dusty environments, and using cotton buds to try to clean the ear. Never try to remove earwax yourself, as you can push wax deeper and cause a worsening of symptoms, or damage to the eardrum.
The earwax removal procedure is completed for a flat rate of $120 in Brunswick, and $95 concession for veterans, pensioners and health care card holders Australia wide. If a second appointment is required, this will be performed at no charge. The fee is paid at the time of the appointment via debit or credit card. If no wax is found in your ears at the time of your appointment, a 50% reduced rate applies.Book Appointment
