Ear Wax Removal Birmingham

Our team of Audiologists work through several sites across Birmingham running 4-5 ear wax removal microsuction clinics providing services like Ear wax removal Hagley, Ear wax removal Edgbaston, Ear wax removal Great Barr Ear wax removal Kingsheath. The clinic in Kings heath is our busiest and our oldest practice which we have been practicing for over the last few years. We have had the pleasure of seeing thousands of patients at the practice over the years all leaving with happy smiles and more importantly happy ears.
The practice has free onsite parking with CQC NHS-approved rooms. Recently we have had a new renovation to make our site completely Covid-19 secure for all our patients. Disabled facilities, disabled toilets, and 5 clinic rooms are available at the practice.
We also work from four other ear wax clinics in Birmingham, therefore allowing for coverage across the city as we are well aware of the difficulties traveling across the city.
The clinical team is made up entirely of Ent audiologists who have worked in ENT hospital trusts across the West Midlands. Consequently, this makes them very skilled and highly experienced with the micro suction procedure.
The use of endoscopic microsuction allows us to remove wax from the eardrum effectively, a procedure that can only be performed with a high level of experience and training.We also provide a mobile home visit service for patients with mobility issues in the community. This service is essentially the same procedure you would receive in any of our clinics. All our equipment is portable so if need be we can see you in your home for the procedure.
All appointments can be made through our practice manager Jo Mooney who will happily book you in for your consultation with us.

Micro suction ear wax removal is the gold standard of ear wax removal. It offers a safer and more gentle way to remove ear wax than traditional irrigation methods. The technique involves using a endoscopic microscope or TTL surgical loupes and a medical suction aspirator with a suction pen.The procedure is quick and painless – it can take as little as a few minutes to extract the wax safely from the ear.
Although micro-suction requires very little intervention we always advise a few drops of olive oil in the ear to help soften the wax. We often find the softer the wax the easier it is to remove out of the ear. However in saying that the over use of drops can turn the wax in to a viscous sticky liquid in the ear which can slide on to the eardrum so try not to use drops excessively.

We would recommend olive oil drops for 1-2 days or Otex but this is dependant very much on an individual to individual basis

We also provide water irrigation for the ears. For some patients microsuction is not always stable especially when dealing with particularly soft wax as a consequence of over use of drops. In such cases we use the irrigation method which involves the controlled pressure of water at body temperature in the ear in order to remove stubborn deposits of wax which deposit themselves on th eardrum. Your clinician will determine which would be the better procedure on the day of the appointment

Ear wax removal drops usually peroxide based including name brands like Otex and Sodium bicarbonate drops are great for breaking down hard abrasive wax in the ear ready for ear wax removal. In some instances they can break down wax sufficiently to the extent were by earwax removal may not be required as the wax has sufficiently dissolved, however we find that this in most cases depends on the size of the cavity. We usually deal with a lot of cases were by the wax has turned in to a semi liquid which slides down the ear canal and settles on the drum completely sealing the canal. and causing complete deafness, our advise is to use drops for 2-3 days before coming in for an earwax removal

We always advice a qualified Audiologist or a practitioner nurse with experience in ear nose and throat. Any other practitioner with a background not in Audiology simply wont have the experience to deal with complex difficult cases and you usually want a audiologist with 100’s of ear wax removal procedures under their belt. We say this because unfortunately due to the unregulated nature of the training you could potentially be having a invasive procedure undertaken by a non audiologist with no previous experience in audiological medicine.
