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.

Consider Offering Treatment by Stella at Your Practice

Stella is quickly expanding across the US and internationally. We are looking for Board Certified physicians who are interested in treating trauma survivors with SGB.

If you're a mental healthcare provider, reserve your spot at Stella’s next webinar.
