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.
“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.”
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.
Demetrio J. Aguila, III, MD, FACS, a board-certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist, specializes in peripheral nerve, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery in addition to treatment of the ear, nose, and throat. Dr. Aguila and his team at Healing Hands of Nebraska focus on individualized care to help patients feel and look their best.
