FOREIGN BODY REMOVAL
We understand that accidents happen, so when a patient tells us “I have something stuck in my ear” or “I have something stuck in my nose,” we quickly jump into action to remove the object safely. Not receiving immediate care when an item such as a Q-tip gets stuck deep in your ear canal can lead to severe pain and/or hearing loss.
The medical practitioners at Midwest Express Clinic can often remove the foreign body in our office. This depends on the location of the foreign body, type of material, and whether it’s graspable or not. Patients with an air duct blocked, or choking, should call 9-1-1 immediately.
Don’t hesitate to visit one of our four Midwest Express Clinic locations, conveniently located in Blue Island, IL; Willowbrook, IL; Schererville, IN; and Munster, IN, to remove a foreign body from your ear or nose. We are open seven days a week from 9:00 am – 9:00 pm. No appointment is necessary.
