Earwax removal clinic

Available at The Tinnitus Clinic in Birmingham, Leicester and Newcastle

Specialist microsuction procedure

Earwax, also known by the medical term ‘cerumen’, is a yellowish waxy substance secreted in the ear canal. It protects the skin of the ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, insects and water.

Earwax doesn’t usually cause problems, but if too much earwax is produced it can lead to a blocked and painful ear, hearing loss and, in some cases, tinnitus. Earwax can also affect the operation of hearing aids, causing them to whistle, produce feedback noises and reduce the quality of sound.

Using a finely calibrated suction device, we are able to safely remove excess wax without the introduction of any materials or liquids. A typical appointment to remove wax from both ears should take no longer than 30 minutes.

“The wax removal was painless and successful, I can now hear from both ears again!”
