    In 2006, Dr. Lipov pioneered the use of Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) for the treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — a procedure that was initially approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the 1950s for the treatment of certain types of pain and circulation disorders. It is performed with an injection of medication into a collection of nerves at the bottom of the front side of your neck. It is most commonly known as a pain-relieving treatment, used to relieve hot flashes for menopause and cancer patients and treating shingles — and, now, to alleviate symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

    Dr. Eugene Lipov, Stella's Chief Medical Officer, is based in Chicago and treats patients at Stella's Flagship location in Westmont.
