What is Microsuction?
A highly skilled specialist uses a microscope or a loupe which provides a clear magnified view of the Ear Canal.
With this view a fine low pressure suction device is then used to remove any excess ear wax or other obstructions.
"Is this the right procedure for me?"
We never carry out any procedure before we have determined:
FIRSTLY if any treatment is needed.
SECONDLY which procedure is right for you.
Microsuction and Irrigation include a full outer and inner Ear Health Check with expert advice.
This is done first so the specialist can let you know which procedures are suitable for you.
Your Nurse Specialist will guide you through a series of questions designed to obtain a complete picture of your past and present ear health.
A thorough examination of your outer and inner ear, using a microscope or loupe and camera will be carried out. Pictures will be taken which you may view if you wish.
This will determine if you do have earwax which should be removed and which is the most suitable procedure.
It will also enable your specialist to advise you on any other irregularities in your ear canal or ear drum which may be causing problems.
Regardless of whether any procedure is carried out, you will be given a complete explanation and advice of what if anything should be done.
If the problem is one which requires a treatment we do not cover, we will help and advise you on the necessary steps to take.
