Best Clinic For Ear Wax Removal North London

As an audiologist I am often asked if I perform ear wax removal, but not all audiologists, myself included, have the training or indeed the skill, to perform this very specialised procedure.

Audiologists all receive the same foundation training in otoscopy, pure tone audiometry, tympanometry, taking ear impressions and fitting hearing aids. Beyond this foundation, they may specialise in paediatric audiology, tinnitus assessment and treatment, balance assessment and treatment, microsuction ear wax removal, and exceptional audiologists may even train in manual instrument ear wax removal.

Blocked Ears Prevent Treatment

One issue we frequently face as audiologists is a patient who has attended clinic for a hearing evaluation with a view to purchasing hearing aids, yet on otological examination their ear canal is blocked with ear wax.

Symptoms Of Ear Wax Blockage

One symptom of ear wax blockage is very similar to that of a gradual age-related hearing loss -i.e.gradual loss of hearing. However, ear wax blockage may have several other simultaneous symptoms and these are: itchy ears, ear ache, feeling unsteady, feeling dizzy, squelching sounds, hearing loss that suddenly comes and goes. Itchy ears on their own without any loss of hearing, or clicking sounds heard when swallowing are rarely a symptom of ear wax blockage.

Completely Blocked With Impacted Ear Wax

When a patient attends my audiology clinic and their ear is completely blocked with impacted wax, there isn’t much I can do for their hearing, so I have built up a network of trusted ear wax removal clinics, in and around London. I make sure I get to know the owners and staff, because at the end of the day, I am entrusting the medical safety of my patients to them. Microsuction ear wax removal is considered a minor surgical procedure, and while it is only classed as minor, the person carrying out the procedure has to have a very steady hand, impeccable eye hand coordination, and intimate knowledge and experience of the anatomy of the outer ear. I don’t want someone who is just out of university performing the procedure, or even someone who isn’t even a registered healthcare professional.
