Watford Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Clinic
The best place to find microsuction ear wax removal in Watford, Hertfordshire WD3. Our Rickmansworth Microsuction Earwax Removal Clinic is conveniently situated inside The Osteopathic House on the border of Hertfordshire and London.
What Is Microsuction?
Simply put, microsuction is the removal of ear wax from the ear canal using illuminating microscopes and gentle medical suction. At our clinics we use ENT-grade suction units and portable convergent microscopes, as well as disposable, sterile suction tips. Microsuction is considered the safest method of ear wax removal, and our training and experience ensure you will have a very safe procedure.
When the ear wax is very tough, or if there is a foreign body in the ear canal, such as a cotton bud tip, or an ear plug which has become stuck, we may use instruments, which are specially designed for removing ear wax and other objects from the ear canal. All of our staff are trained and experienced at using instruments. You may also see instrument removal also called "curettage" or "aural toilet", but we think "instrument removal" sounds nicer.

Microsuction is a process of removing ear wax from the ear canal using a medical suction pump, suction wand and either surgical loupes or a special ear endoscope. The ear endoscope is a surgical instrument with fibre optic fibres around the circumference and a solid lens down the middle. The fibre optic fibres carry light into the ear canal, so that the procedure can be viewed by the practitioner on a small screen. Microsuction is by far the most effective method of earwax removal. Tradionally only performed in ENT clinics due to the size and weight of the equipment, it can now be performed by appropriately trained individuals in smaller clinics due to portable suction pumps and visualisation equipment now available. Our network of London Microsuction clinics provides a choices of locations.
How Safe Is Micro Suction?
Micro suction introduces no water into the ear and only removes wax from the ear using gentle suction. The Micro Suction Practitioner uses a pair of operating microscopes known as "loupes" and a bright light to see into your ear canal in great detail. This way, he or she can see exactly what they are doing inside your ear. The suction wands are sterile, so the risk of infection is virtually nil. For these reasons, microsuction is considered the safest method of removing wax from the ear. The process can be quite noisy, up to around 100dB(A). The HSE recommends that to avoid permanent hearing damage, you shouldn't be exposed to continuous levels of noise at 100dB(A) for longer than 15 minutes without hearing protection.
