Ear wax build-up can become a problem when it is pushed into the ear canal by objects such as cotton buds in an attempt to clean them. When wax is built up in the ear canal, problems with hearing, pain, and fullness can occur.
The safest way to remove ear wax build-up is to consult a medical professional, with microsuction being one of the quickest, most effective forms of removal. The procedure uses a miniature vacuum cleaner device which gently removes the wax through suction which the consultant can see through a microscope into the ear.
Ear Wax Removal at The Clean Ear Clinic
Consultant ENT surgeon Mr Simon Baer treats patients in his One-Stop Clean Ear Clinic for the removal of ear wax at Spire Sussex Hospital.
Mr Baer uses a minimally invasive technique known as microsuction. This involves the use of a microscope to provide a good view of the ear canal and a miniature vacuum cleaner to gently remove wax. It is an extremely safe and comfortable method of cleaning the ear. It does not carry the same risk of trauma and infection that can be associated with syringing.
