Peripheral Nerve Surgery

If you have joint pain that’s so far been treated unsuccessfully so far, talk to Dr. Aguila and the team to see if nerve surgery could help offer a long-term solution.

Long-term Solutions for Chronic Pain

If you are suffering from chronic pain and numbness and are searching for relief and a return to a more active and pain-free life, peripheral nerve surgery could be the procedure that finally restores you to health.

With offices in Norfolk, Nebraska, Dr. Demetrio Aguila is one of the nation’s top peripheral nerve surgeons – and one of the few who performs the procedure in this part of the country.

A member of the American Society for Peripheral Nerve, Dr. Aguila specializes in peripheral nerve surgery and has helped patients from around the country regain pain-free and healthy lives.

Doctor Aguila focuses on treating patients with chronic pain or numbness due to diabetic neuropathy, chemotherapy treatments, trauma or surgery. He specializes in cases involving the lower extremities and the abdomen, often treating patients who have undergone C-sections or inguinal hernia repair.

And Doctor Aguila is among the only surgeons to perform peripheral nerve surgery in the region, including all of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Iowa and Kansas.

Doctor Aguila trained under Dr. A. Lee Dellon, head of the internationally respected Dellon Institutes for Peripheral Nerve Surgery.

Doctor Aguila has brought the knowledge he gained under Dr. Dellon to Nebraska and has become the region’s most respected peripheral nerve surgeon.

Doctor Aguila can help patients with various types of nerve pain so they can return to work and a more active life. He also works with athletes who have been injured and may require nerve treatment to return to action on the field. Dr. Aguila and his team provide a comprehensive, tailored approach to the surgical management of neuropathic pain.

According to The Dellon Institutes, the most common peripheral nerve conditions in America are due to:

  • Diabetes
  • Chemotherapy
  • Heavy metal poisoning
  • Other unknown causes

Neuropathy can cause serious physical problems, including amputations in severe cases.

Patients with nerve problems often suffer a loss of sensation, along with pain that can be intense and debilitating. Peripheral nerve surgery can help relieve painful symptoms in your legs, ankles and feet.

Sometimes peripheral nerve pain can be traced to problems in the joints. Cases Dr. Aguila can treat include:

  • Pain following knee replacement surgery
  • Shoulder and ankle pain following reconstructive surgeries to those areas
  • Groin pain after hernia surgery
  • Pain from Caesarean section deliveries.

Doctor Aguila understands that getting to know his patients one-on-one is key to successful diagnosis and treatment. If you are suffering from chronic pain, and aren’t sure what’s behind your pain, a nerve problem could be the culprit.

Doctor Aguila will take the time to review your medical history, conduct all necessary tests to make a proper diagnosis and then recommend the peripheral nerve surgery that’s right for you.

Along with his expertise in peripheral nerve surgery, Dr. Aguila is a diplomate with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology.

As an ENT, reconstructive and plastic surgeon, Dr. Aguila is skilled in both comprehensive reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. He can help improve the lives of patients suffering from nasal and upper airway problems and obstructive sleep apnea.
