Ear Wax Removal by Microsuction
The most common ear wax removal procedure is aural toilet (ear syringe). However this procedure is inappropriate when the ear is infected or when the eardrum is damaged such as perforation. The safest procedure for ear wax removal includes performing ear microsuction and using aural curette under the direct visual observation of Microscope. We do not use WATER in this procedure. Our audiologist has been trained by Dr Vorrath (ENT) . He is accredited to cerumen management in audiology practice using Vorotek O Scope. Other equipment that assist this procedure include video otoscope and tympanometry.
In some cases, other medical conditions can lead to ear blockage sensation, such as eardrum perforation, sudden hearing loss, Eustachian tube dysfunction, Meniere’s disease, Otosclerosis, Otitis Media Effusion, Acoustic Neuroma, TMJ problem, facial nerve interference, etc. We have the expertise to help you and your doctor for further diagnosis.
What is Ear Wax?
Ear wax is a mixture of secretions from sebaceous glands and sweat glands. It is produced in the outer part of ear canal. It gradually moves out of the ear, carrying dead skin cells and other debris. Most people have one of two types of ear wax. Wet ear wax is sticky and yellowish brown to dark brown in colour, while dry ear wax is crumbly and grey to tan. The presence of ear wax can reduce your hearing, but also cause itchiness, a blocked ear sensation and can cause your hearing aids fail to work efficiently.

“Came here after a ear blockage that my usual GP had been unable to remedy. Found this place by chance and so happy I did. I was able to get an appointment in a short time frame, the price was great, and everyone working there is brilliant.” (Jamie Duncan)
