What is microsuction?
Microsuction is a safe ear wax removal technique which uses a specialised high magnification binocular operating microscope. This allows depth-perception and magnification to look directly into the ear canal. Our nurse then uses a very fine sterile suction device at safe low pressure to remove the build up of wax.
Microsuction is widely regarded as the safest, most comfortable and quickest means of ear cleaning. No outdated ear syringing, messy oil treatment or dangerous and ineffective Hopi ear candles. At Cotswold Ear Care, we use very high magnification, which gives our nurse the minute detail of the ear.
Where are we?
Microsuction earwax removal clinic’s are at Oakwell Health Clinic, 45 Cirencester Road, Cheltenham, GL53 8EX. Free parking is available on site.

Why not ear syringing?
Sound travels down your ear canal to the ear drum, one of the major factors of hearing loss can be a build up of wax in the ear canal, when this happens it’s necessary to remove the ear wax to restore hearing and balance. traditionally this has been done by ‘ear syringing’, a method of forcing water into the ear canal to dislodge and then flush out the ear wax. It’s not really the best method of removing ear wax because you are facing water into the ear canal so it can disturb the delicate lining of the ear canal, which can lead to infections a few days afterwards. It also requires 1-2 weeks of oiling each day prior to the procedure to be able to carry it out.

A guide to healthy ears
Putting a few drop os of olive oil into your ear once a month or fortnight will help to move skin and wax to the outside of the ear.
Chlorine in swimming pools can interfere with the ph of ear wax and cases infections. Swimming in the sea is better because sea water is more in line with your body. If you get ‘surfers ear’ I recommend you wear a wetsuit hat to cover your ears as the cold wind is one of main causes.
Do not use cotton buds in your ears as it can perforate the ear drum or case trauma to the delicate ear canal. It will also stimulate the glands to produce more wax and push wax further into the ear.
