My name is Trevor, and I am from Atkinson Nebraska. I was having numbness and pain in my hands, so I thought this sounded like a good option for me.

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.”
Dr. Demetrio J. Aguila III, a peripheral nerve surgeon, plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist in Norfolk, Nebraska, has now given more than 50 patients fast-healing relief from carpal tunnel syndrome by using the Sonex Health SX-One MicroKnife® to perform carpal tunnel release (CTR) with ultrasound guidance.
Most patients who undergo CTR using ultrasound guidance are able to return to normal activities in 3–6 days. The procedure is performed in Dr. Aguila’s office, using local anesthesia and a small incision which is typically closed without sutures. Dr. Aguila prescribes over-the-counter medications for comfort.
“Across the board, patients remark at how easy recovery is and how quickly they bounce back to normal activity,” he says. “We have a lot of patients who work with their hands. For many, CTR with ultrasound guidance was the only viable option since they couldn’t afford to miss work.”
