Adelaide’s Leading Ear Wax Removal Clinics…
Pro Health Care Clinics across Adelaide are proud to be one of the first General Practice Clinics to offer microsuction earwax removal at several of our Medical Centres throughout Adelaide. This service is available at our Kidman Park, Stirling, Norwood, Mitcham and Hope Valley clinics.
Microsuction Earwax Removal is the preferred method of treatment for medical staff and patients to guarantee safe and effective removal of ear wax as well as other foreign bodies that may obstruct the ear canal.
A microscope is used to carefully examine the ear. Upon identifying the location and extent of wax within the canal, your doctor will use a fine, low-pressure suction device to safely remove the blockage.
Why Use Microsuction?
Microsuction is the safest and most effective method for removing earwax. No liquids are required throughout the procedure which means that there is no mess and the procedure can be undertaken in just a few minutes at the time of your consultation. The fact that your doctor will be able to clearly and precisely visualise the blockage makes it extremely safe.
Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out without a view of the canal, during microsuction, the canal and the ear wax is being directly viewed with the microscope and sucked out. This significantly reduces the potential for perforation of the ear drum or mastoid cavity, improves comfort and avoids complications that may arise from traditional ear irrigation such as further complicating a foreign body.
One of the most common reasons for temporary hearing loss is a build up of wax in the ear. Your doctor will require an initial consultation to thoroughly assess your ears and a range of factors that may influence your suitability for this treatment. Upon assessing suitability, our state of the art microscope is used to carefully examine the ear canal and safely remove the wax with our low-pressure suction device.
The procedure will require a longer consultation which will be charged at a fee that varies between practices and is dependent on any concession entitlements. We recommend that you clarify the total cost of the procedure with the practice at the time of making your appointment.
