Foreign Body Removal

Foreign body removal is one of the most common procedures in the emergency room. Since children are able to grasp objects at nine months, they often come in with something stuck in their ear, nose or throat. When it comes to adults, there are any number of things that can get lodged in the ear. From ants to moths, cockroaches, flies and more, you never know what might be causing the blockage. Get rid of the blockage and schedule your procedure with I Need A Surgery through an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.

How do I know if I need foreign body removal?

If you can see or feel something in the external part of your ear canal or nose and you weren’t successful in getting it out on your own the first time, you might need surgery to take care of it for you. Blockage resulting from a foreign body can lead to further complications if not handled properly.

How is the foreign body removal procedure performed?

Various techniques are often used to help get the foreign body out of the ear canal. From suction to irrigation to extraction, the foreign body will determine what method is best. Suction is used for insects and objects that can break apart into smaller pieces. Irrigation is contraindicated for anything that might swell and become enlarged.

What is recovery like after foreign body removal?

Since there isn’t any anesthetic used or sutures involved, recovery is often minimal. The only time you have to worry about anything is if the object penetrated your tympanic membrane. If a fever, redness, discharge or pain develops, you need to speak with your doctor.

How much does foreign body removal cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $1,950, versus having to pay $19,500 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
