post-traumatic-stress-trap_1Stellate Ganglion Block as PTSD Therapy

  • Do you have PTSD?
  • Are you on guard most of the time?
  • Are you easily startled?

If so, you may be interested in this study. We are currently enrolling subjects to participate in a pilot study of a new treatment known as a stellate ganglion block. Involvement in this study will include the block procedure (completed in 1 session). The procedure is fairly simple and involves local anesthesia. This is similar to how a dentist would numb your gum. Additionally, assessments will be administered prior to the procedure and again during follow-up visits.

If you are interested in participating in this study or would like more information, please contact Linda Nguyen.
