Stellate Ganglion Blocks
Stellate Ganglion Blocks are used to reduce the excess transmission of pain signals from this nerve group to the brain. This injection is a needle-based procedure and requires no incision.
During this procedure, a needle is placed through the skin.
Next, a mixture of anesthetic, saline, and anti-inflammatory medicine is injected around the area of the stellate ganglion nerves. This mixture helps reduce the inflammation of the spinal nerves that are causing the pain.
This procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure under light sedation or a local anesthetic by the New Jersey Spine Institute’s team of Board Certified Pain Management Physicians. This non-surgical approach uses fluoroscopic guidance to ensure accuracy.
