Chronic pain can be a significant hindrance to your quality of life, making it difficult to carry out even the most basic activities. At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, we offer a range of interventional pain management therapies, including Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block, to help our patients manage their pain and improve their quality of life.
In this service page, we'll explore what Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block is, why it may be the right choice for you, and what you can expect from the procedure.
A Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block is a type of procedure where a local anesthetic is injected into the stellate ganglion, a bundle of nerves located in the neck. The goal of the injection is to temporarily interrupt the pain signals that are being sent to the brain and to provide pain relief.
Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block is performed in our state-of-the-art facility and is typically done as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you can go home the same day. The procedure is relatively quick and generally well-tolerated, and many patients experience significant pain relief as a result.
Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block may be a valuable option for individuals who are experiencing chronic pain in the neck, head, chest, or other areas and have not found relief through other forms of treatment.
If you are interested in learning more about Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block and how it can benefit you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team of experienced pain management specialists.
The Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block procedure typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete. During the procedure, our team will use X-ray guidance to ensure that the injection is delivered precisely to the stellate ganglion.
After the procedure, you may experience some temporary numbness or weakness in the affected area, as well as some minor discomfort. Our team will provide you with post-procedure instructions to help ensure a smooth recovery, and you should be able to return to your normal activities within a few days.
