TULA Success Story After Five Sets of Failed Ear Tubes

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.

Piriformis Syndrome Pain Relieved with Peripheral Nerve Surgery

Joseph is an avid runner who was experiencing sciatica pain shooting down his leg. For seven years he chased down a diagnosis and tried many different treatments, none of which were successful. Then he found Dr. Demetrio Aguila, one of a handful of Peripheral Nerve Surgeons in the U.S. trained to remove his piriformis muscle thereby releasing the compression on the sciatic nerve. Watch Joseph’s journey back to health.

Joseph’s Story Piriformis Syndrome – Pain in the Buttocks “I love to run but when I was in college I started having pain in the buttocks. It got so bad that I had tingling in my toes at work and I thought I must do something. I had to quit everything and that is frustrating for an active guy. It was to the point where living was a bear.” Joseph tried to find a treatment, but no one could help “Twelve physicians later we still did not have an answer. We tried physical therapy, chiropractor, massage, and everything else. Seven years in I am like what am I going to do?” As an ER physician, Joseph’s father had heard about Dr. Demetrio Aguila, a Peripheral Nerve Surgeon. Dr. Aguila is one of a handful of peripheral nerve surgeons in the United States who focus on relieving chronic pain through nerve surgery. Within five minutes of examining him, Dr. Aguila was able to give Joseph something that had eluded him for seven years and dozens of doctors – a diagnosis. “He walked in and he said to me, I am 80% sure I know what you have.” Joseph had piriformis syndrome, a condition when the sciatic nerve is compressed by the piriformis muscle. Dr. Aguila surgically removed Joseph’s Piriformis Muscle, a procedure only a few doctors in the U.S. are trained to do. Joseph is back to running and living his life to the fullest. “I am thrilled to be back running. It is such a blessing that I can function much less compete.” He has this advice for anyone suffering from back or sciatica pain. “Fly into Norfolk to have Dr. Aguila examine you. I know what it feels like to be hopeless. It has been a blessing to work with Dr. Aguila and his team. I owe them a debt that I can never repay.”

Carpal Tunnel Release with Ultrasound Guidance – Lisa’s story

Lisa’s story is a familiar one for patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Pain was bothering her all day and keeping her up at night. She needed surgery but didn’t want to endure the downtime of a hospital stay and traditional Carpal Tunnel Surgery.

Luckily her mom found a solution on Facebook – Carpal Tunnel Release with Ultrasound Guidance. Watch how Lisa became the 58th CTR Success Story for Dr. Demetrio Aguila.

“I had done everything that I knew how to do. I had gone to Chiropractor, massage, etc. I had the EMG from the typical doctor and then she said had referred me to a surgeon.

On Facebook my mom found your ad and so I decided to explore it and that is what led me here today.”

The downtime associated with traditional Carpal Tunnel surgery forced her to explore other possibilities. “I am a teacher, and I didn’t want to wait until school started and then have to miss six weeks of school, so this was an excellent option for me.”

Lisa traveled from Griswold, Iowa to have the procedure and was impressed with the Healing Hands team from Dr. Aguila to the rest of the staff. “They are all amazing, like this place is amazing they are having fun they love what they do they are smiling. He talked the whole time all the way through explained what he was doing showed me different measurements so I would understand even more. He pointed out things on the ultrasound, I mean he could not have been more accommodating. It was like he was teaching me how to do it.”

Here’s Lisa immediately after CTR with ultrasound guidance. “Awesome yup my hands are a little tingly but that’s just because of the numbing agent and I assume I’ll be good to go because nothing really hurts.”

The future is brighter day and night. “I could not sleep all night because I would wake up in pain so I’m excited that I might be able to sleep all night and they said usually it happens the first night so that is that is exciting. You know exactly what is happening every second from the ultrasound to when he does the surgery. He is so excited you can tell that he is excited to solve your problem. I would recommend this procedure to anyone.”

Ear Tubes Under Local Anesthesia

Dr. Aguila is one of a few surgeons in the U.S. now offering TULA, tubes under local anesthesia. In this video he demonstrates how the procedure works in the doctor’s office without the cost or inconvenience of a hospital or general anesthesia.

Dr. Demetrio Aguila demonstrates in this video:

We are going to show you exactly how TULA works with this little model patient that we have here now

The procedure is simple. This is the device that

we used to put the tube in. This has a tube in it right now.

I am going to show you how that works.

Normally I have magnification loops on which allow me to see a higher magnification.

I look in there after the child has had his or her ears appropriately anesthetized. They are made nice and numb I put the device in here like this and I press the button boom tube’s in that’s, it all done!

This training model has in it a simulated eardrum and there you can see the tube right in the simulated eardrum. TULA is simple, easy, convenient, affordable

and accessible.
