Wax Management

What is earwax?

The bodily process of producing ear wax is completely natural. For many people, ear wax goes unnoticed and does not cause any complications. However, for some individuals, earwax can build up and become impacted inside the ear canal.

What is Micro-suction?

Micro suction is the removal of wax/infection/debris using a small suction tube and a fine suction end. The procedure is safe, comfortable and painless. We assess your ear canal with the aid of a microscope which enables us to see exactly what we are doing at all times.
On occasion, there may be more complex ear canals (those had surgery or people with perforations in the eardrum), where an ENT consultant would need to carry out the procedure which we are able to arrange for you.

What our patients say?

  • Ms. A Stribblehill
    I consulted Mr Punnoose, Audiologist at Gatwick Spire and was impressed from the beginning. The OPD is clean and Tidy and the staff were very welcoming. Mr Punnoose soon Found the cause of my reduced hearing and invited me to attend the Crawley, Northgate Surgery for the removal of ear wax using the latest technology by iClearsuction. Throughout the procedure he was kind and professional and explained everything he was doing to me in details. I also then had a test called tympanometry to check if I had any problems in the middle ear like fluid or pressure variation. After all these procedures and his explanation I am not worried about my hearing anymore.

    I have been a patient of Mr Punoose for nearly a decade. His service has always been impeccable throughout this time, he is professional and personable. Hearing tests are thorough and saved for comparing with any further tests. Following a test, I purchased a digital aid from him, which I have been delighted with. It does not end there! Mr Punoose is committed to providing an outstanding after sales service to ensure you are getting the best from your aid and managing well.

  • Beckwith
    Life changing is the only way I can describe my experience at Gatwick Audiology. Having struggled with NHS hearing aids for many years and having people visit my home trying to sell me hearing aid with very little aftercare by unknown people, it was following a recommendation from a friend of mine I called Gatwick Park. From the very first telephone call, through the consultation, to the fitting of my hearing aids and the follow-up reviews I am treated with respect in a very warm, welcoming way by a team of very professional people. I have no hesitation what so ever in urging anyone who suffers from a hearing loss to pay them a visit, the service is great and the result priceless.

    The Spire Gatwick Park facilities are amazing, it doesn’t feel like a hospital when we visit there for sorting out my hearing aids. Prince is always very welcoming and looked after my husband very well.
