Ear Wax Removal

If your ears are blocked with wax, you may have been told that you need your ears syringing. This used to be easy to do through your local GP but these days there are far less GP practices willing to perform ear syringing, mainly because the procedure is no longer part of a doctors training.

There are three different methods of ear wax removal we can offer. The traditional syringing, the more popular micro-suction, or even endoscopic suction. The latter two are generally preferable as there is no need to apply wax softening drops for several weeks beforehand and also you don’t get wet. Suction is generally considered to be safer as well as there is no pressure being put on the eardrum.

Consultations can be preformed at one of our clinics or as a home visit and will take around 10 to 15 minutes per ear. The cost is from £40 for one ear or £60 is both ears need doing.

All of our consultations are performed by registered audiologists who are fully qualified in ear wax removal.
