Microsuction is available through our sister company at both Kestrel House in Chelmsford and at Tollgate Clinic in Colchester.
Microsuction is a method of ear wax removal that has a proven record of being more effective compared to other techniques, such as ear syringing. Our GP or Audiologist will use a powerful microscope to see the build-up of wax or presence of a foreign object in your ear which may be causing a blockage, and will remove it using a small, gentle suction tool. Unlike ear syringing, or ear irrigation, which cause the ear to get wet, Microsuction uses suction with pin point accuracy to extract the wax and therefore offers a solution for people who have previously had ear infections or a perforated ear drum.
The procedure is relatively pain free and will rarely cause any significant discomfort. Our Microsuction appointments and the treatment are normally completed within 30 minutes. In rare cases a second visit may be required to allow remaining wax to soften for complete removal.
