Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to offer stellate ganglion block therapy for the treatment of chronic pain. We are an interventional spine and orthopedic practice that specializes in finding solutions to complex chronic pain conditions, including neck, head, upper arm and chest pain. Our double board-certified physicians are committed to using the most minimally invasive methods possible, including interventional spine treatments, to help patients who suffer from chronic pain find long-term relief and return to an active and healthy lifestyle.

Relief for Upper Arm and Chest Pain

Stellate ganglion block is an advanced interventional treatment that can be used to treat chronic head, neck, upper arm and chest pain. The procedure involves injecting a local anesthetic in the sympathetic nerve tissue of the neck. The injection serves to block the sympathetic nerves that go to the arms and to some degree, the face. The goal of the treatment is to reduce pain and improve mobility. This type of treatment is currently being used to treat a number of different chronic pain conditions, including Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Sympathetic Maintained Pain.

The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced in administering stellate ganglion block injections, under the guidance of fluoroscopy. Using this advanced interventional treatment, we are able to help many patients with head, neck, upper arm and chest pain find relief from their symptoms, improved mobility and a greater quality of life.

Stellate ganglion block injections are typically performed in an outpatient surgery setting and take only a few minutes to complete. Typically, a series of ganglion block injections are needed to achieve maximum benefit.

Am I a Candidate for a Stellate Ganglion Procedure?

If you are wondering if you are a candidate for a stellate ganglion block procedure, please contact the Stellate Ganglion Block Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to schedule a consultation with one of our interventional spine physicians. After a complete evaluation, we can determine if this type of treatment is right for you. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life.

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.
