For blocked, waxy or infected ears: Ear microsuction. The modern safe way to clean ear canals.

Blocked Ears

Gentle, comfortable, safe – because we are skilled!

Microsuction – is the term used for cleaning ear canals using the magnified view of a surgical microscope and a tiny vacuum cleaner and/or tiny instruments.

What are the benefits?
Because we can see so well with the magnified vision, we can then remove wax/debris without touching the ear canal walls – hence a comfortable, safe procedure. The magnified views allow the Ear Nurse Therapist to assess the ear canal andeardrum to make a diagnosis.

Who may need microsuction?

  • anyone with wax/debris in their ear canal.
  • anyone with an ear canal infection.
  • anyone who has had a middle ear infection and the ‘pus’ has burst out into the ear canal.

  • anyone with a foreign body present.
  • anyone with a discharging ear.

Specialized in wax removal

Safe and effective wax removal

Earwax, also known by the medical term cerumen, is a yellowish waxy substance secreted in the ear canal of humans and other mammals. It protects the skin of the human ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, insects and water. Excess or compacted cerumen can press against the eardrum and/or occlude (block) the external auditory canal or hearing aids, potentially hindering hearing.
