Microsuction is a method of ear wax removal. Ear wax is removed using a gentle suction and a high power microscope to view the ear canal and drum. It is the preferred method used by Ear Nose and Throat Doctors and is available from our Chelmsford, Ramsden Heath and Upminster practices.
Other methods of ear wax removal, such as syringing, may be effective but can carry some inconvenience, such as using oil for several days before treatment, and risks, such as damage to the ear drum and/or ear pain.

Microsuction is £65 for both ears, £60 for one ear. If no wax is discovered a consultancy charge of £19.99 is incurred.
