Ear Wax Removal

Quick, Safe & Effective

Simple & Safe Microsuction Ear Cleaning,
Performed by Experts in London

The microsuction technique uses gentle suction to clean the blocked ear, and is much safer and more comfortable than all other forms of ear cleaning, including syringing and irrigation. A small, thin probe is directed at the ear wax and/or infection in the ear canal, and the gentle suction is applied to remove the blockage. With microsuction there is no need for pre-treatment, e.g. olive oil or ear drops. This technique of ear wax removal in Maldon, Barnet, Pinner, Rayleigh &  Abbots Langley is extremely safe and effective.

The Benefits of Microsuction

Unlike ear syringing or ear irrigation, where ear wax is flushed out without a view of the canal, during microsuction, the canal and the ear wax is being directly viewed with the microscope whilst it is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient. Other benefits of this type of ear wax removal in Pinner, Maldon, Barnet, Abbots Langley & Rayleigh clinics include:

I was experiencing reduced hearing on my right side for years and was convinced I needed hearing aids and avoided going for a hearing test. I finally picked up the courage to go and it turned out I had heavily impacted ear wax which was removed and the difference is amazing. Thank you.

Alternative Methods

Endoscopic Wax Removal

Endoscopic wax removal is the process by which wax is removed from the ear with the help of a specialist endoscope. An endoscope is an instrument attached to a video monitor that is used in medical procedures to look inside the body.


Irrigation is an alternative wax removal procedure available to patients who are comfortable with it. Safer and more straightforward than syringing, an irrigation solution is warmed to body temperature before a controlled flow is gently streamed into the blocked ear.
