What is a Stellate Ganglion Block?


A stellate ganglion block (sympathetic block) is an injection of local anesthetic into the front of the neck. A stellate ganglion block is done to: Diagnose the cause of pain in the face and head, arms and chest. A stellate ganglion block blocks the sympathetic nerves that go to the arms, and, to some degree, the sympathetic nerves that go to the face. This may in turn reduce pain, swelling, color and sweating changes in the upper extremity and may improve mobility.
