Endoscopic Ear Wax Microsuction

The Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Network were the first clinics in London to be able to offer endoscopic ear wax microsuction and private endoscopic ear wax removal using instruments by request at selected locations.

After a thorough evaluation by three of our most experienced practitioners, we have concluded that performing microsuction endoscopically significantly complicates the microsuction procedure, compromises safety because the image is 2D and provides no depth perception, and causes fatigue because of the weight of the endoscope. In addition, with a narrow ear canal, the 2.8mm endoscope and 2mm suction tube have a tendency to "chopstick" and flip past each other. In contrast, the Vorotek O-Scope portable ENT microscopes that we use allow depth perception all the way up to the ear drum, and therefore greatly improve the safety of the procedure when compared to an endoscope or loupes.

Ear wax removal using instruments is particularly suitable for clients with severe tinnitus and/or noise sensitivity, where microsuction may not be appropriate due to the noise levels. The instruments used are the St Barts wax hook, the Jobson Horne probe, and crocodile forceps (due to the high cost of the crocodile forceps, an additional charge of £10 is applied if its use is required).

Where there is a foreign object in the ear canal, it may also be necessary to use instrumentation, especially the crocodile forceps.

Saturday Earwax Removal Clinic In London - New Service Announcement

Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Clinic Baker Street

Saturday Earwax Removal Clinic

At The Microsuction EarWax Removal Network, we are excited to announce that we will be adding a Saturday earwax removal clinic at our Baker Street branch from 16th April 2016. Joining us will be Raspal Kaur, an experienced Audiologist who was trained in microsuction at Rotherham Primary Ear Care Centre.

If you need ear wax removed at the weekend, you can book an appointment on 0800 1 337 987

Weekend Earwax Removal Clinic Price

The cost of a Saturday earwax removal appointment will be £80 for one or two ears, which is still great value compared to other clinics in Central London.

We decided to extend our microsuction earwax removal clinic to Saturdays, as many people have enquired with us about weekend earwax removal appointments as they work Monday to Friday. This is because they are unable to attend an ear wax removal clinic during the week. The addition of a weekend ear wax removal clinic is a service that we are delighted to offer those who live or work in London.

Saturday Earwax Removal Clinic London Location

Our earwax removal clinic is within Berkeley Court Pharmacy on Melcombe Street. If you don't know the Baker Street area that well, Melcombe Street is just off Baker Street, between Baker Street and Marylebone London Underground stations. It's about a one minute walk from Baker Street Underground station, or four minutes by foot from Marylebone station. 

We strongly recommend that to increase the probability that we'll be able to remove all the wax, and so the procedure will be a more pleaasant experience, you ought to use Earol two times a day in both ears for two or more days prior to your appointment (if possible). You should be able to buy Earol for approximately £5 from any good pharmacy.

Please note that we don't recommend the use of Otex, as this contains peroxide, which can cause irritation of the ear canal, and as a result the microsuction procedure may be less comfortable for you. 

You can find more information about our Central London earwax removal clinic here. That page has more information, like how you can get there, as well as the address, contact details, nearest underground stations and where you can park.

Ear Candling - Effective Panacea or Dangerous Gimmick?

Ear Candling or MicroSuction?

Many people choose ear candling (also known as "thermo-auricular therapy") as they are told it is a safe, relaxing and effective way of removing ear wax from the ear canal. With treatment prices typically around £30 for an hour, it seems very good value compared to aural micro suction, which may cost up to £85 for half an hour. With such a difference in price, who in their right mind would choose micro suction over ear candling? Read on, however, and the answer may surprise you...
