M25 Program Helps a Young Boy and His Family
This story brings to life why Dr. Aguila created the M25 Program which allows patients to pay for surgery with community service. Nine-year-old Silas suffered a horrible dog bite to the face, an injury requiring multiple surgeries. His parents could not afford the treatment that would dramatically affect their son’s life. Thankfully they had access to the M25 Program, an experience that touched everyone involved in Silas’s care.
Dr. Aguila’s patient Nicole shares her feelings of gratitude for Dr. Aguila and his M25 Program which allows patients to pay for surgery with community service. This video represents Nicole’s story in her own words.
Exciting news from Healing Hands of Nebraska as Dr. Aguila accepts a new title at a new location. It is what he calls, “a beautiful opportunity to create something amazing!”
Dr. Demetrio Aguila is the first surgeon in the world to perform TULA – Tubes under local anesthesia. A child can sit on his or her mom’s lap while Dr. Aguila inserts the ear tubes under local anesthesia and in his office. TULA is safer, more convenient and cheaper than traditional ear tube surgery. Patients can save money and time while eliminating the risk of general anesthesia.
The Tula System allows Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctors to comfortably place ear tubes in awake children during an office visit. The FDA-approved system consists of:
- A numbing drug solution
- A specially-designed earplug that keeps the solution in the ear canals and a small device connected to the earplug that uses a very low electric current to transport the medicine to the eardrum
- A specialized tube delivery system, and
- Tula ear tubes, designed to be similar in size, function, and quality as ear tubes commonly used in the Operating Room.
- The Tula System has been demonstrated to be safe and effective in clinical studies, and 95% of parents in the most recent study were very satisfied with the Tula procedure.2,3 In a clinical study without sedation or general anesthesia, ENT doctors were able to successfully insert tubes in 87% of the children.2 If the in-office procedure is not successful or cannot be completed, your ENT doctor may reschedule the procedure in the OR.
