The Stella procedure targets a group of nerves in the neck, allowing us to treat the physical trauma in the brain.
Stella’s SGB Treatment was Built on a Life Changing Understanding of PTSD
- 1 The brain’s fight or flight response can become “stuck” in high gear after experiencing trauma.
- 2 This can cause an injury to the brain, resulting in symptoms of PTSD like hypervigilance, insomnia, and irritability.
- 3 Stella’s SGB procedure, the Dual Sympathetic Reset, appears to treat this injury, potentially relieving even the worst symptoms within minutes.

Considered the pioneer of the Stellate Ganglion Block treatment for PTSD, Dr. Lipov was the first to use the procedure for PTSD back in 2006. Because of his development of Stella’s SGB procedure, the Dual Sympathetic Reset, Dr. Lipov has been called the “Einstein of modern anesthesiology” for his work developing the SGB treatment for PTSD. As one of the world's leading experts, Dr. Lipov ensures that the latest protocols are being followed by every Stella physician, to meet our highest standards of care.
