Private Microsuction Clinic

This service is currently suspended due to COVID-19

The Practice provides a private microsuction clinic, which is an effective form of ear wax removal, available via appointment only. This clinic is currently every Wednesday from 9am – 12:30pm and Thursday from 11am – 4:15pm.

Please note that this service is only available to patients aged 8 years or more and who are NOT registered with Greenway Community Practice GP’s

Our Specialist Nurses are fully qualified and have over 20 years experience. 

Please call us on: 0117 959 8939 and speak to one of our medical care navigators

Prior to the procedure, it is important that you soften the ear wax by putting 2 drops of olive old into the relevant ears, twice daily, for 5 –7 days.

You must lie down to apply the oil and not apply cotton wool for the procedure to be effective. 

 

What Is Microsuction

Microsuction is a wax removal technique using a precision suction apparatus to suck un wanted or obstructing skin cells and wax from the ear canal.

We use surgical lenses which provide binocular magnification so that the tip of the suction tube is always under direct vision.

Microsuction is a more precise and gentle technique compared to ear syringing.

Occasionally we may need to use other instruments to remove hard wax. The technique means we can always see what we are doing and can avoid touching the skin on sides of the ear canal. 

 

Why Microsuction Is Better 

Ear Microsuction is the safest, quickest and most comfortable approach to cleaning ear canals using the latest medical technology.

Microsuction is:

  • Safer
  • Quicker
  • Cleaner
  • Generally better tolerated, with less side effects*
  • More effective
  • Doesn’t need weeks of waiting for drops to soften the wax

*The Microsuction process can be noisy and occasionally make you feel dizzy. This usually passes within a few seconds.
