If you’re suffering from a blocked ear or impacted earwax, Pindrop Hearing audiologists are fully trained in microsuction earwax removal.

What is micro-suction earwax removal?

Microsuction earwax removal is a procedure that uses gentle suction to remove excessive or troublesome earwax. Using a microscope, our trained audiologists are able to look directly into the ear canal. They are then able to introduce a sterile suction device, which gently removes the wax.

Occasionally we may need to use other instruments to remove hard wax, or to soften the wax using olive oil.

The benefits of microsuction earwax removal

Earwax removal is commonly carried out in GP surgeries or audiology clinics using ear irrigation, but this involves injecting a jet of water into the ear to remove the wax. Microsuction earwax removal has many benefits in comparison:

Safer – the clinician can see what he/she is doing
Faster – it provides immediate results
Cleaner – there’s less mess
Preferred – by the majority of people

Microsuction usually requires a single visit to the earwax removal clinic. If you’d like to book a consultation, please contact our surgery today. You can call us on 0207 487 2660 or book your appointment straight via our online portal below
