Pelvis: The obturator foramen is the round space between the ischium and pubis bones in the pelvis; it is mostly covered by a membrane called the obturator membrane; the obturator nerve/artery/vein exit the pelvis via the obturator groove+canal; 2 muscles: obturator internus + externus originate along the bones, a few other structures in the area are named "obturator ___" to signify their location.

Neurologist right : I've never tried to stimulate the obturaror nerve. I think it'd be quite uncomfortable. The needle EMG would potentially be helpful.
