Stellate Ganglion Block

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Stellate Ganglion Block Physicians in Atlanta GAA stellate ganglion block is an injection of local anesthetic in the sympathetic nerve tissue of the neck. These tissues contain the nerves that make up a part of the sympathetic nervous system, located on either side of the voice box in the neck. A stellate ganglion block is an advanced interventional treatment used to treat chronic head, neck, upper arm, and chest pain. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our physicians are proud to offer stellate ganglion block therapy for the treatment of chronic pain. We are an interventional spine and orthopedic practice that specializes in finding minimally invasive solutions to complex chronic pain conditions.

Stellate ganglion block therapy involves injecting a local anesthetic that blocks the sympathetic nerves that travel to the arms and face. This procedure is done to manage pain in the head, neck, chest, or arm caused by nerve injuries. It can also be done to reduce sweating in the face, had, arms, and hands as well as treat reflex sympathetic dystrophy, sympathetic maintained pain, or complex regional pain syndrome. A stellate ganglion block can also be done as a diagnostic procedure to find the cause of a patient's pain in the face, head, arms, or chest.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, our double board certified physicians are committed to using the most minimally invasive methods possible to help patients who suffer from chronic pain find long term relief. We understand that those who are in constant pain find it difficult to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. That is why our goal is to help patients find relief and improved function. Our physicians are highly experienced in the stellate ganglion block procedure, and we are able to help many patients with head, neck, face, arm, and chest pain find relief.

Contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our interventional spine specialists to determine if you are a candidate for a stellate ganglion block procedure.

Gratefulness

During the month of November, it’s a good time to reflect upon all that we’re grateful for. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we have a long list of all that we’re thankful for.

Are Your Ready For Your Cooler Workouts

November ushers in a season marked by gratefulness and cooler temperatures. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we’re grateful for the cooler temperatures. Georgia summers can actually be somewhat prohibitive for being active outside. The high temperatures and humidity often make playing, exercising and journeying outside unfavorable.
