Let’s Work Together to End the Suffering Trauma Causes
Stella takes unprecedented steps to collaborate with medical doctors and mental healthcare providers to provide trauma survivors with the robust treatment they need to heal.
SGB Treats the Physical Injury of Trauma
The Stellate Ganglion Block
SGB is an injection of a local anesthetic into the stellate ganglion, a nerve bundle in the neck connected to the fight or flight system, to help people feel calm again in their own bodies.
We Adapted SGB for PTSD
In 2006, Stella’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Eugene Lipov, discovered that SGB – a procedure with a 100-year history – can reboot the nervous system to its pre-trauma state. He's since published peer-reviewed research and treated thousands of trauma survivors.
SGB by Stella Is the Beginning of One’s Healing Journey, Not the End
SGB reaches its full potential when combined with therapy from mental healthcare providers. Many providers report that SGB helps their patients become more receptive to other treatments.
