Endoscopic Earwax Removal in The Uk & Ireland
A new form of ear cleaning is being introduced by Independent hearing healthcare Practices. across the UK and Ireland. The new procedure is called Endoscopic Earwax Removal, two of our partners have introduced the procedure to their Practices, let's see what they have to say.
Earwax Removal Services Worcester
Victoria and Tom Dixon of Worcester Hearing Centre have introduced the new procedure in their practice. They already offer extensive ear care services including irrigation earwax removal and microsuction earwax removal in Worcester. Victoria was the first in the Practice to become certified in the new process and she was kind enough to have a word with us about it.
Victoria has years of experience in offering clinical hearing care and she is a highly respected member of the hearing healthcare profession. She said that offering the new earwax removal method made sense for them and their Practice. It was just part of their commitment to providing better and more in-depth choices to their Patients.
In essence the procedure is similar to microsuction earwax removal, with the exception that a video endoscope is used instead of a microscope. Victoria said that the use of the endoscope makes the process so much easier, the endoscope gives a wide view of the ear canal and just watching it on the video screen makes it so easy to remove the wax.
Earwax Removal Services Cork
The second partner to introduce the process is Audiology Medical Services in Cork, Ireland, Trevor Cronin, one of the senior professionals there spoke to us. He agreed with Victoria's sentiments, he said that Kay and Charles Lewis ( the owners of the business) were committed to offering cutting edge services to the customers. They saw the new earwax removal process as a natural extension of their services. They also offer irrigation earwax removal and microsuction earwax removal in their practices in Cork, Waterford, Tralee and Kilkenny.
Trevor echoed Victoria's statement about the video monitor, he also said that he felt the view given was far easier than keeping your eyes to the microscope and made manipulating the suction tube far easier. The two things combined made removing the earwax totally very easy.
You probably will have gathered by now, the procedure is usually undertaken with a video endoscope and a medical suction machine. Although, it can be undertaken with the endoscope and manual earwax removal tools. The wide view of the video endoscope makes the procedure easy, safe and thorough. Our partners see it as a natural extension of their commitment to offering a cutting edge service and we expect more of them to add the service to their offerings.
