One in ten children and one in 20 adults suffer from a of ear wax. While a healthy amount of ear wax may protect the skin in our ears and prevent infections, excessive wax can become a problem.
Founded in 2016, Earworx uses similar techniques to other ear, nose and throat specialists. Our professional curettage and micro-suction procedures are safe, pain-free and produce outstanding results.

How the Earworx Procedure Works
We take the time to examine your ears and assess for wax build up, particularly around the eardrum.
If you need one of our extraction procedures, our friendly nurse will use a pair of ‘loupes’. These are quite similar to binoculars with a light attached to the top, and it helps our nurses have the best view of your ear canals.
The process then involves a gentle micro-suction procedure and curettage to safely clean any blockages from each of your ears.
Why You Might Need Ear Wax Removal
Excess ear wax can cause an uncomfortable sensation and even lead to hearing loss for some.
Depending on what you do for work, or your interests, there are a range of reasons you should see us. If your activities include swimming, surfing, listening to music through headphones, working in a dusty environment, or if you use hearing aids, then our services will be highly beneficial.
Our approach will help ease the pressure in your ears and minimise any future problems.
Our qualified registered nurses use dry and effective micro suction to gently remove ear wax under direct observation. Our rates are $145 per session or $115 if you are a Pensioner, Veteran, Health Care Card Holder, Child or Full Time Student. A reduced rate applies of $60 if no wax is found at all clinics. If a second appointment is necessary this appointment will be complimentary at all clinics. Please note we are a provider for St Lukes Health and Health Care Insurance (HCI).
We see children down to the age of 4 years. A discussion with Earworx staff is recommended prior to booking. For safety reasons children need to be able to follow direction and keep reasonably still.
