Stellate Ganglion Block Atlanta, GA

A 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.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
