Microsuction Earwax Removal

What is Microsuction Earwax Removal?

Microsuction earwax removal is the safest and most effective method for removing earwax. A microscope is used to examine the ear so that the doctor can clearly visualize the blockage. The doctor uses this to identify the location and extent of wax in the canal and uses a fine low-pressure suction device to safely remove the blockage.

How is it different from ear syringing?

An ear syringe is a pressurised device that flushes out the ear using water. Ear syringing is not always effective and it poses a risk to the eardrum as it is done without a view of the ear canal. Microsuction is a much gentler and safer procedure as the ear canal and earwax is able to be directly viewed with the microscope and sucked out. This provides instant relief.

Why use it?

The most common reason we use microsuction earwax removal is for temporary hearing loss, which is caused by a build-up of wax in the ear. It may also be used for other foreign bodies that obstruct the ear canal, earache, dizziness or ringing in the ears (Tinnitus).

How long does it take?

We require a 30-minute appointment for microsuction earwax removal. Please advise reception staff upon booking so that they can allocate a suitable amount of time for your appointment.

Is this suitable treatment for me?

A consult is required with your doctor to assess your suitability for the procedure. Patients may be required to use Waxsol ear drops for 3-5 days prior to having the procedure done to help soften the wax in the ear and prep for removal.

For further enquiries or to book an appointment, please contact your local Pro Health Care clinic for more information.
