One of the many services we offer at Queensway is microsuction. We can provide microsuctioning for our own NHS patients or can see outside patients on a private self-referral basis. 

What is microsuction?

Microsuction is a technique that uses a microscope to view the ear canal and uses suction to suck out the ear wax. This is a  gentle and pain-free procedure. Microsuction differs to ear syringing in that ear syringing uses a jet of water to dislodge ear wax.

As with any procedure, there are some very uncommon risks. These risks include:

  • minor trauma to the ear canal or ear drum
  • perforation of the ear drum
  • hearing loss
  • tinnitus
  • infection

These risks tend to be very small.

Private charges

  • £30 for one ear
  • £50 for both 

If you wish to self-refer to us for private microsuctioning please call our reception team who will be more than happy to help you.
