Glue Ears and Grommets Insertion (Children)

Glue Ears

Glue ears is a buildup of thick mucoid fluid in the middle ear behind the eardrum. This condition can cause reduced hearing abilities, recurring ear infections or a perforated eardrum.

A treatment known as a Grommets Insertion might be required.

Grommets Insertion

This procedure involves inserting a very small tube in the eardrum to drain the fluid buildup behind the eardrum. Children are generally placed under general anaesthesia to complete the procedure.
