Microsuction – Ear Wax Removal

Posted on February 21st, 2023

Microsuction is available on the NHS locally.  Please book a review appointment with one of the Doctors or Nurses here at the Practice if you feel you would benefit from referral.

Microsuction is the removal of wax, infection, debris and foreign bodies within your ears. The practitioner looks at your ear through a microscope, and will then use a small suction tube and fine suction end to remove the wax. This can be noisy due to the suction machine however, it should not be painful. If it is uncomfortable, let the practitioner know and they will stop the procedure. You will be asked to keep still as possible unless asked to move. This is important as movement can cause accidental injury to the ear canal or eardrum if unexpected.
