The term microsuction is used to describe a procedure carried out by our Specialist Nurses to remove wax, dead skin, foreign objects and even infection, from your ears. We use a specialist microscope to look in your ears and a very small suction tube to “hoover” out the debris.
This is a service offered at the Sawston Medical Centre for patients who are unable to have their ears irrigated in the normal way. This may be because you have a narrow ear canal, a mastoid cavity, a foreign body in the ear.
To access this service you will require a referral from your own GP.
