Private Audiology Services
In a private ear microsuction procedure with Vista Health, we use a suction method to remove ear wax or foreign bodies from the ear canals. It is safer and more comfortable than other ear wax removal methods such as irrigation or ear syringing.
The audiologist gently inserts a small suction probe into the ear and uses low suction pressure to remove the ear wax. The procedure is performed under magnification with a bright LED light giving a clear view of the ear canal and eardrum.
Advantages of ear microsuction over syringing:
- Microsuction does not involve flushing the ear canal with water. It is therefore a much more hygenic method of removing ear wax.
- Ear microsuction is safe for patients with a perforated ear drum or mastoid cavity. A medical assesment is always performed prior to treatment.
- You can expect instant results following the procedure.
Hearing Aid Consultation
There are two forms of hearing loss: conductive hearing loss, which happens when sound cannot pass through the outer or middle ear, and sensorineural hearing loss, which is caused by issues within the inner ear (cochlea) or the auditory nerve, which sends signals to the brain.
Hearing technology can be beneficial in cases of hearing loss. If an underlying condition, such as earwax build-up or tinnitus, is causing your hearing loss, we can formulate a treatment plan to resolve these problems and improve your hearing.
