Wax Removal

Wax Removal

Earwax, also known by the medical term ‘cerumen’ is a yellowish waxy substance secreted in the ear canal. It protects the skin of the human 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 or hearing loss. Earwax can also affect the operation of hearing aids, causing them to whistle, produce feedback noises and reduce the quality of sound.

Using an operating microscope and 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 20 minutes.

Our microsuction staff comprise of senior nursing sisters and senior audiologists who have over 30 years of combined experience of carrying out wax removal, working both in the NHS and private sector. The London Road Clinic is a CQC registered practice based in Leicester City Centre. The London Road Clinic is the only private setting in Leicestershire that is led by consultant ENT Surgeons who are available to assess your ears if our audiology and nursing staff have any concerns about your ears. You are therefore assured of the very highest standard of care with the most modern equipment. We provide a safe and relaxed atmosphere for your wax removal treatment. We have our own private car park for your convenience.

Appointments for microsuction wax removal are charged at £90 per session for examination and wax removal of either one ear or both if required.

Earol Oil Spray

Earol spray delivers a discrete dose of Olive Oil directly into the outer ear reducing the risk of spillage/mess. We recommend 1 or 2 applications of Earol twice daily for 4 or 5 days before consultation for wax removal. You can purchase Earol Olive oil spray from our sister company' online shop.
