At Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice, we strive to provide the best care for your ears to ensure you can hear and feel your best. The conventional general practice approach for removing obstruction such as wax from your ears involves ear syringing. While this remains the default approach, our practice has specialised equipment which allows for suction microscopy under stereoscopic vision.
There is an additional $20 out of pocket charge added to your consultation fee when suction microscopy is used.
This highly effective method of ear wax removal is commonly used by ear, nose and throat specialists. While it is not necessary to utilise this approach for every case, the precision of ear suction is particularly helpful in cases of stubborn wax or conditions such as otitis externa where syringing is unsuitable and removal of ear wax will facilitate treatment of the condition.
