Wax Removal

Wax build-up can cause hearing problems and discomfort, therefore Paediatric Diagnostics are pleased to provide child ear wax removal at our private clinic in Dorking, Surrey.

Our Consultant paediatric ENT Surgeon can use microsuction to remove wax build-up from your child’s ears. Paediatric microsuction can be arranged for a fee of £150.

We are located in Surrey and are perfectly located to see patients in Croydon, Leatherhead, Kingston-upon-Thames, Tonbridge, Maidstone, and all nearby areas.



Wax is a natural material produced by the ear canal that helps protect again dirt, debris, and bacteria. For most people, the wax naturally makes its way out of the ear canal. For some people, wax can block the ear canal. This can happen because of the anatomy of the ear, after trauma to the ear canal skin, or after infections. Using cotton buds, in the ear headphones or hearing aids can also push wax deeper into the ear.

Microsuction is the safest way of removing wax from the ear and is safe in children of all ages. The procedure is quick and easy and takes only a few minutes to perform. It can even be performed in people with eardrum perforations or active infections. Microsuction involves using a gentle vacuum sucker in the ear whilst looking into the ear with some form of magnification, most commonly a microscope. The doctor will explain to your child that it can be quite noisy and occasionally ticklish but only very rarely is it uncomfortable. Some children may experience a slight feeling of dizziness for a short period during and after the procedure but this usually passes quickly. Occasionally some children may experience transient tinnitus (strange sounds in the ears) but this gets better for most people fairly quickly.
