Safe, Painless Microsuction Ear Wax Removal
In addition to our established water irrigation method for ear wax removal we now provide a microsuction option to remove excess earwax. We will be happy to advise on which method will be most suitable for you and we will fully explain the pros and cons. Procedures are only carried out with your consent.
Microsuction ear wax removal is undertaken at our Verwood hearing centre. This process uses a fine tube connected to a suction machine and doesn’t require water to remove the wax. The procedure is safe, comfortable and painless. We view your ear canal with the aid of a microscope which allows us to see exactly what we are doing at all times. This is removal process is very thorough and is particularly suitable for smaller ear canals and for those who may have suffered problems with their ears such as ear drum perforation. Our hearing healthcare professionals have been trained to the Rotherham Community Health Services standards which has been endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners and The Royal College of Nursing.
Microsuction Earwax Removal Process
The process is pretty straight forward., We will examine your ears to confirm that there is earwax present. We will then explain the procedure in detail so that you understand what will take place. You will be asked a few questions about your ear health, perforations of the eardrum and any previous experience you have had with the procedure. The earwax will be removed using the Microsuction tube. This process can take from 5 to 20 minutes depending on the amount and position of the wax. Once the earwax is removed we will again check the ear canal to make sure it is clear and healthy.
