Wax removal

Micro suction and/or irrigation, your ear health and hearing is our primary concern.

We will not perform unnecessary treatment and will only go ahead if it is safe to do so.

We take all aspects of your hearing health extremely seriously. Ear wax removal requires extreme care. A comprehensive assessment including video inspection of the condition of your ear canal is a prerequisite. A recommendation and explanation follows before we proceed with your informed consent.

Our preferred method is Micro Suction, which is the NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) recommended method of removing wax from a patients ear. We also use an electrical irrigation pump, which applies a gentle pulsed stream of water into your ear. This has replaced syringing as an alternative method where no perforation or other reasons are present which prevent its use safely. Manual extraction is sometimes reverted to if safe to do so.

We will review and check your ear canal, with the help of the video camera and you will be able to see the results for yourself. You can prepare for the procedure by applying olive oil to the ear. Earol Olive Oil Spray is very effective for this. Do not try to remove the wax yourself. The smallest thing that you should put in your ear canal is your elbow.

£40 of one and £60 for both ears.
(a home visit fee may apply £16)

We have performed 100’s of treatments and have many favourable reviews. We pride ourselves on being informative, thorough and careful. Our Video Camera allows us to see the inside of your ear at 50 x magnification. We will review and check your ear canal BEFORE, AFTER and sometimes during, and you will be able to see the results for yourself. In the event we do not get all the wax out of your ear canal we will rebook to complete the job and on rare occasions may need to refer you back to your GP.
