Endoscopic Ear Wax Removal Videos
Endoscopic ear wax removal is a pretty new way to remove ear wax from the ear canal. It involves a suction machine but a specialist endoscope is used to view the ear canal while the suction is being undertaken. It makes the job a little easier and probably a little safer as well. The professional has a direct view of what they are doing at all times. Here are some videos we have gathered of the process.
Young lady came into our Hinckley branch today, desperate to have her right ear cleared, particularly as she wears hearing aids, and this right canal was causing the aid on that side to keep whistling!
Once this was cleared she could hear so much better through the aid and the whistling had completely stopped.
A lady came into our Hear4u branch after going swimming, not knowing there was wax in her ear.
The water had blocked her ear completely. She was glad to have this removed and could hear clearly again within 10 minutes of her appointment.
This young man had a significant build up of earwax in one ear, which was successfully removed, but he felt there was also a build up of wax in the other ear too.
On inspection you can see there’s a little wax on the canal wall, but you can see a beautiful clear view of his eardrum!
This young gentleman came to our branch last week to have his right ear cleared.
Microsuction and water irrigation would not move the wax at all, so he used olive oil for a further week and returned for Endoscopic microsuction today.
There was a good 7-8 minutes of microsuction prior to this last minute or so shown here. Eventually after a lot of coaxing, the final lump of wax comes out and you can see the clear view of the eardrum at the end.
The man was over the moon it was finally out!
Gentleman came into our Leicester branch today for endoscopic wax removal.
Due to constantly travelling plus loads of flying, wax has blocked both ears!
Huge amount of wax was drawn out through the procedure, which you can see on the medi wipes!
Patient so grateful to have them cleared! It’s been driving him mad.
Gentleman just been into the Leicester branch stating he felt his right ear is completely blocked.
Big long lump of wax extending 3/4 down the canal. Pretty much all of the wax came out together with some coaxing.
Beautiful clear view of his eardrum at the end. Patient very pleased as he’s going away next week and swims a lot - his ears would’ve been blocked for days with wax in.
He says it’s ruined holidays before.
Get YOUR ears cleared before you go away so you can enjoy your holiday to the full!
Mrs D just been in to see Roger at our Leicester practice.
Seen by us a while back and advised to use olive oil to soften hard wax in her left ear. You can see the wax was still quite gooey and stuck together. However, all cleared now and the patient very satisfied that she can hear clearly again!
Mrs C visited our Leicester practice this morning, having been using olive oil for several weeks.
This made the wax very soft and easy to remove, and she left a very happy lady able to hear properly again after weeks of being completely blocked up!
Successful endoscopic wax removal for a client who came to our leicester branch.
Both ears were fully occluded with soft wax - he’d been struggling to hear anyt hing for a few weeks. He was faced with a 3-4 week to have them cleared by his GP practice and couldn’t wait.
Mr M just been in to our Leicester branch.
Hospital had two attempts at removing the wax from his left ear - without any success. He was apprehensive about the procedure and needed a little reassurance. A huge lump came out in one go after having to coax the wax to loosen it from the canal.
All done, eardrum clear and the gentleman can hear beautifully again!
Gentleman came into the Leicester practice this morning as he had been swimming recently and felt his ear was blocked afterwards.
There was a fair amount of soft wax in his ear, but it was difficult to film it clearly as his canal is quite narrow and hairy.
There is a film of skin stuck to the canal wall but that would not move. You can clearly see the eardrum at the end.
Patient very pleased to hear properly again!!
Miss C came into our Leicester practice this morning as her right ear was completely blocked. She had been using Q tips to clean her ear, but didn’t get any wax out. We’ve advised her that you shouldn’t put anything “smaller than your elbow” in your ear as it can push the wax further in and impact it.
This is what had happened here. She has a narrow canal entrance but the wax was removed successfully - and she loved watching it being done too.
She can hear clearly again!
This video is a 17 year old lady who wears earplugs a lot to listen to music through her phone - wax has impacted as a result. Microsuction can’t get hold of it enough to remove it. Results in the wax needing to be removed manually.
Tip: Don’t over wear earphones because wax builds up, compacts and blocks the ear canal!
Mr M came into Leicester this morning as his hearing has got progressively worse over the past couple of weeks - he could barely hear us in the practice today.
Otoscopy showed both ears completely blocked with soft wax - he had been using sodium bicarbonate drops. We advised him just to use olive oil as bicarb can shed some of the skin in the canal.
He is in the Police and is also a Commercial Pilot - so it was imperative for him to hear clearly again.
Both ears were cleared, although there was still a little right by the eardrum on this one. A bit too uncomfortable for suction, but he’ll just use oil to soften it and it will shift off the eardrum.
He was absolutely delighted as he rang us this morning and we fitted him in today - luckily we had a gap to squeeze him in.
Mr W came into Hinckley this afternoon to have his ears cleared of wax. Over the past 3-4 years he has tried to get his existing hearing aids returned to his current hearing, but each time he has been told his ears are full of wax and they couldn’t retest him.
There was a film of skin across his canal but that has essentially been cleared and the customer has seen our video of both ears now being clear. So he can go armed with this knowledge. He’s happy with his current aids but just wants them returned.
He now knows who we are and where we are - a company nearer to his home instead of travelling as far as he does.
A young lady came in a couple of weeks ago, very nervous about having microsuction, but both ears were blocked with hard wax.
We advised her to use olive oil to soften it for 7-10 days - she returned this morning and both ears have now been completely cleared and she can hear clearly again.
Another very happy customer.
A 92 year old customer of ours came in for endoscopic wax removal in Hinckley today.
You can see the wax in her ear, but as the video goes on you can see it is stuck on a thin film of skin in the canal. We’ve seen quite a few people with this issue - the problem is that wax coming out from the eardrum has nowhere to go and it sticks to the skin and blocks the canal.
At the end you can see a perfectly healthy eardrum and the patient can hear more clearly again.
This blockage was making her hearing aids whistle. That has stopped now!
A 36 year old man came into our Leicester practice just now for endoscopic microsuction.
His GP had told him to use oil for a month but that they could only do removals on a Thursday - which was no good with his job. Both ears were completely full of soft oily wax - which made it quite difficult to remove as our pipes kept clogging up.
However, as you can see from this video, a nice healthy eardrum appears at the end so he’s a very happy customer now - delighted to be able to hear clearly again.
Mr E has just been in to our Leicester practice.
He knew his right ear was blocked and has used Otex for several days - although we advised him to just use olive oil in future - especially as he didn’t know whether the wax in his ear was hard or soft, or fully occluding his ear.
Endoscopic microsuction cleared all of this, although a battery warning stopped the recording before you could see the TM very clearly. The customer was delighted to hear superbly again. You can see the eardrum at the end, apologies we did not record the full clear image.
The customer was quite nervous beforehand as he’s never had this done before. At the end he was very complimentary about a comfortable procedure.
Fantastic earwax removal success at our Hear4u branch.
Clients ear was fully blocked and could not hear any background noise due to muffled sound. Earwax removal on the same day of appointment- no need to revisit.
As you can see the amount of earwax removed- It is safe to say he was a very happy customer, ready for the weekend!
Mrs F attended our Hinckley branch as her ears have been blocked for weeks and they were making her daily life very difficult.
Her GP surgery had tried removing the wax without success. This video shows our Endoscopic microsuction procedure being carried out, resulting in huge lumps of wax successfully being removed.
She’s delighted she can finally hear again, and said the procedure was very comfortable indeed. “Good to hear!”
