Microsuction can be used to removed wax, discharge, dead skin or other material that is blocking the ear canal. Medication can also be applied during the procedure if necessary.

Microsuction is performed using a high powered microscope that provides a clear view of the ear canal. Specially designed instruments, including a small vacuum, are used to remove material from the ear. Microsuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure at the ENT clinic in London. The procedure can be a little but uncomfortable and the microsuction pumps are quite noisy. Some patients experience slight dizziness or vertigo.
