We have been using Microsuction technique since 2014 - one of the first hearing centres in London to do so
£85 for both ears. £25 for Assessment Only.
Standard hearing centres never match the service features we provide at our medical centres. We don't think these features can be considered optional. We see them as essential for your hearing healthcare. Read more by clicking here.
Attempts to clear your own ear wax can be harmful. See this video for more information.
Syringing and Irrigation - now outdated
These are older techniques now. Syringing and irrigation methods use high-pressured jets of water to wash out wax. Consequently, having excessive ear wax removed via ear syringing or ear irrigation was often a painful and potentially harmful process.
Microsuction - Safer
We use microsuction, which is safer and has now become healthcare professionals preferred method. Unlike water irrigation, microsuction is comfortable, painless and quick. The procedure is undertaken using loupe magnification, ensuring the procedure is exceptionally safe. A low powered, blunt medical suction device is placed a short way into the ear canal to remove wax. The service is led by a Doctor of Audiology, Gladys Akinseye, ensuring the highest standards, and providing a fully comprehensive professional service.
Often, wax can be removed within minutes. Tyoically it takes 15-30 minutes.
A light, blunt probe is inserted a short way into the ear canal. The probe gently suctions wax out. The procedure is carried out in full view, using loupe magnification to see exactly where to suction excessive wax. Microsuction is safe, comfortable and quick.
This is usually not necessary with Microsuction. However, we recommend applying olive oil drops or spray (twice a day) from the day you book the appointment, until the day of the appointment. (Always read the label) This may serve to assist in the quick removal of wax.
Symptoms can be quite wide-ranging but include the following: hearing loss, tinnitus ('ringing in the ears'), itchiness, blocked feeling, earache, irritability and disorientation.
We will look into your ear canals and assess if you have excessive ear wax. If there is not any excessive wax then the reason for your symptoms may be something else. We can then refer you to our in-house Audiological Physician without the need for a referral from your GP (We are clinically fully integrated with the in-house Audiological Medicine department but this is run under a separate company entity.) Or, you can return to your GP and seek medical advice from them. For the assessment, without the ear wax removal treatment we charge £25.
We nearly always remove excessive wax first time. Occasionally, wax needs softening using olive oil spray / drops for a return visit to remove more wax. There is no charge for repeat visits. The £85 charge covers multiple appointments should you need it.
Occasionally, there is a need to use ear syringe or irrigation in combination with microsuction. We are able to use these methods but we will always use microsuction as the preferred method and will rarely need to use any other technique.
