Microsuction Clinic

The Microsuction Clinic is a locally commissioned service for patients in Brighton and Hove. 

Microsuction involves a microscope and small suction machine to remove debris from the ear canal. This debris can block the ear, making it difficult to hear, or may become infected. In some patients washing out the ears (syringing), is not appropriate and therefore microsuction is an alternative treatment.

The procedure is noisy and can occasionally cause some mild discomfort, but is a safe procedure which helps to remove wax blockages and can treat infections. More severe or recurrent ear infections will often benefit from microsuction to remove the infected debris.

Our clinics our run by Dr T Whitfield, Dr S McGuire and Ms Melanie Oakley. 

This clinic requires a referral from your GP Surgery and can be completed by a doctor or a nurse. Once we have received your referral we will contact you to arrange an appointment.
