Injection the celiac plexus of nerves that surround your aorta, the main artery in the abdomen, with a local anesthetic is a celiac plexus block. If you are having pain in the gut or abdominal organ tissues, the block helps keep the nerves from signaling the pain to the brain through the spinal cord.

Who it Can Help

The block primarily targets the pain you are feeling in the abdomen and is done to those who are experiencing chronic abdominal pain.

If we have diagnosed your pain early enough then that increases the odds of having the celiac plexus block work. We will discuss how long you have been feeling pain to determine if celiac plexus blocks are likely to give you the relief you are looking for.

Injections can take between 10 and 30 minutes We can use a tiny needle to provide a local anesthetic to the skin and deeper tissues to numb the area before inserting the needle with the celiac plexus block. Intravenous sedation is also available to make patients more comfortable during the treatment.

How long the treatment lasts varies from patient to patient. The more injections you get of this block helps increase the amount of hours you are given relief.
