Tubes Under Local Anesthesia: Logan’s Story
Ever since he was an infant, 17 year old Logan suffered from chronic ear infections. He was looking for relief without undergoing another surgery in the hospital. Dr. Demetrio Aguila is one of only a few surgeons in the U.S. offering TULA – tubes under local anesthesia. Logan was in and out in less than an hour in a procedure he describes as painless.
Logan: I am here today because bad infections since I was small, and I have had 5 sets of ear tubes
Logan’s Mom: He had a period where he did well and then last year he had chronic infections and a lot of discomfort. We knew Dr. Aguila was in the area and offering this procedure called TULA which involves ear tubes in the office and under local anesthesia. We wanted to give it a try.
Dr. Aguila: We are on the forefront of a revolution in ear care patients who have ear problems, chronic ear problems that require ear tubes, those tubes can now be put in in the office under local anesthesia without the need to be put to sleep without the need to be away from their parents. It is easier it is safer it is more convenient it is better all-around. Today’s case, Logan’s case was revolutionary because you know after his case that he accounts for now more than one-fifth of all the cases in the United States. We have done them right here in Nebraska and over half of the cases in Nebraska were done by our team.
Logan: Dr. Aguila walked me through process and explained everything. There was no pain at all. He says I can do anything I want right now.
Dr. Aguila: Logan’s recovery is done. He can go wrestle tonight if he wants to.
Mom: The difference between when he was an infant and now is amazing. We had to hand him to the nurse and be away from hi. It was traumatic. With TULA you can be in the room be there with your child and that is a huge difference for parent and child.
Dr. Aguila: It is safer, it is more convenient, it is more affordable it is better. Tula is the future, and the future is here at Healing Hands of Nebraska.
