Ear Microsuction


Microsuction is a safe and thorough method of:

  • Removal of wax and foreign bodies in the ear
  • Removal of wax in patients with contraindications to ear syringing/irrigation (i.e. tympanic perforation, previous ear surgery, history of otitis externa following syringing and many more. Please see the NICE CKS guidelines on the FAQ page for a full list.)
  • Treatment of acute or chronic infections of the ear canal
  • De-waxing of children’s ears (cooperative children above 4 years of age)
  • Regular cleaning of mastoid cavities
