Microsuction is the gold standard for ear wax removal. Historically many practices would have syringed the ear also known as syringing. However it is now recognised that blindly penetrating the ear with water at high pressure is more likely to result in trauma and damage to the ear.
Professional Microsuction Ear Wax Removals in Birmingham
Our ENT Surgeon, Mr Amit Parmar performs microsuction ear wax removal with the use of an operating microscope. The ear wax is removed from in the ear under a microscope in a treatment room.
Ear wax can be a common irritant that can affect your hearing and on occasion give you ear discomfort. Significant Ear wax can also reduce your hearing
Cotton buds are not designed for dewaxing your ears, however, people will often use them to clean their ears and as a result, push wax further down the ear canal. We are able to offer Ear Microsuction performed by a fully GMC accredited Consultant ENT surgeon. Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out ‘blindly’, with microscopic and microsuction ear wax removal the ear wax is being directly visualised under the microscope whilst it is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient.
How does Ear Wax Microsuction work?
The microscope is used to directly visualise the ear wax whilst it is being removed. Microscopic and microsuction ear wax removal typically takes between 15 to 30 minutes to perform. This can vary depending on the amount and type of ear wax, how deep the ear wax is inside the ear canal, and whether you are having one or both ears treated. It is performed with you laying down on a bed with your head tilted to the side so that the ear with ear wax can be accessed.
We are one of the few services that offer ear dewaxing/microsuction for children.
Having a Consultant ENT surgeon performing this procedure also allows for an examination of the eardrum and diagnosis of other conditions that may be affecting the ear such as Cholesteotoma.
