Update: 18 June 2020
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to offer the micro-suction ear wax removal service at the present time.
Change to usual level of service
In view of the current health climate, I have taken the difficult decision to withdraw all but emergency appointments at this time.
Due to the nature of the type of consultation, it is impossible for me to maintain the advised 1 metre distance from a client during an appointment.
I will keep the website updated and hope to be able to resume normal micro-suction services as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding.
Ear Wax Removal in Sheffield
• Does your hearing seem to have become “muffled” or “dulled”?
• Do you have the feeling that your ears are blocked?
• Are your family complaining that “you are not listening to them”?
• Has your hearing aid started to feedback/whistle?
These may all be signs of excessive wax build up within the ears.
Although our ears produce wax as part of a protective, self-cleaning mechanism, for some people wax can become retained within the ear, build up and cause a blockage. If the ear is completely blocked with wax, sound cannot pass through the ear as well as it should and hearing can seem reduced.
Wax can be safely removed from the ear using Micro-Suction. The excessive wax is ‘vacuumed’ from the ear using a fine suction probe.
Prior to the procedure, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire so we can be sure you are suitable for aural micro suction. Your ears will be examined by one of our Audiologists and we will be able to show you using a small camera what we see.
You can look at your ears before and after the wax removal procedure; a makeover for your ears!
