Lumbar Sympathetic Plexus (Ganglion) Block
Lumbar Sympathetic Plexus (Ganglion) Block is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a local anesthetic and steroid medication into or around the lumbar sympathetic nerves. These nerves are part of the sympathetic nervous system located on either side of the lumbar vertebrae. The procedure aims to block the transmission of pain signals from the lower extremities to the brain, thereby reducing discomfort and promoting healing.
Who is a Candidate for the Block?
This treatment is typically recommended for patients suffering from chronic lower extremity pain that may arise from conditions such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), or other neuropathic pain conditions. Our expert team will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if a Lumbar Sympathetic Plexus (Ganglion) Block is the right treatment option for your specific needs.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
The Lumbar Sympathetic Plexus (Ganglion) Block is usually performed on an outpatient basis. You will be positioned on your stomach and the area to be treated will be sterilized and numbed. Using X-ray guidance, our highly skilled pain management specialist will accurately insert the needle and administer the medication to the lumbar sympathetic nerves. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes, and patients often experience noticeable pain relief within a few days.
