Hassan was wonderful! I had recently taken up swimming and it developed that the water wasn't clearing after swimming so I knew there was an issue. Other earwax removal places were going to be an appointment in 2 or 3 weeks' time which would have been a nightmare as I am a busy working musician and my hearing is essential. But Hassan offered me an appointment the same day. He was very careful and reassuring, aware of my anxiety and need to have brilliant hearing for my music and carefully removed the wax, some by hand and some with gentle suction. It was easier than the dentist - a little bit uncomfortable at times but never painful. There was definitely plenty of wax removed, 40 years of build-up I guess! The whole procedure only took about 20 minutes, and I can now hear better than ever before, and my ears clear instantly when swimming. Cannot recommend him highly enough - at the time it was £60 in total for both ears I think but worth every penny. Suggestions from my GP a...

Earwax Microsuction & Hearing Aids

Earwax Microsuction
Your private ear wax removal is done by microsuction, this is the cleanest, fastest and safest way to remove impacted earwax in blocked and waxy ears. The procedure takes 20 minutes and results are instant. Ear wax removal by microsuction involves the insertion of a microtip or Zoellner tube into the External Auditory Meatus (ear canal), along with a sterile plastic canula. Suction is then used and the compacted wax is pulled out of the ear canal. 

Olive Oil Or Hydrogen Peroxide?
Lubrication by the use of olive oil is recommended. Olive oil used 2-4 times daily can help lubricate the ear canal a day before microsuction. We recommend patients that have persistent ear wax or cerumen to use olive oil drops once a fortnight. 

Special branded products and hydrogen peroxide have no real benefit over using clean olive oil ear spray. Avoid using infused olive oils such as garlic or chilli. A spray or pippete is the best method to insert this into the ear canal.

Microsuction Is The 'Gold Standard'
At Ear Doctor we only recommend the gold standard of wax removal. We only use microsuction and no other method of earwax removal is used. Some general practitioners are currently not providing services for wax removal or forcing patients to use olive oil drops for over three weeks before removing by water syringing if done at all. 

Ear wax removal by microsuction is the only method we practice to remove excessive and impacted ear wax. NHS GP surgeries have stopped syringing ears currently in Greater Manchester, Stockport, Altrincham, Sale and within Cheshire. Services have been moved into the hospital and waiting lists are getting longer. Ear Doctor offers same day appointments by home visit or in one of our branches in south Manchester. 

Benefits Of Microsuction
Syringing if done incorrectly can lead to perforations and damage to the eardrum. The chance of this happening while visualising the eardrum is very low during microsuction. Microsuction always removes deep, compacted or impacted wax. There is little chance of causing ear infections. There is also less chance of vertigo or dizziness with Microsuction and it can be performed on a perforated ear.
