Private Microsuction treatment is carried out at Your Doctor surgeries by our ENT specialist Dr Riccardo Di Cuffa, and is considered by Dr Di Cuffa and other experts to be the gold standard treatment for ear problems such as those listed above.
Traditional ear syringing uses water to ‘flush out’ wax. It is not always effective and can frequently cause more complications for the patient, including infection, ear drum perforation or damage to the ear canal.
Microsuction is a much safer and more effective treatment, since the doctor uses a microscope to see the ear canal in detail throughout the procedure, and a delicate ‘vaccuum’-like instrument to precisely remove wax.
As the procedure is carried out by a specialist GP, a prescription for any medication deemed appropriate can be issued within the consultation as part of the fee.
Ear wax removal appointment, 1st appointment 20 minutes, £125
