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.”
