What are Stellate Phenol Blocks?

Our pain management specialists at Preston Surgery Center welcome patients for treatment with our stellate, celiac, and hypogastric phenol blocks for pain. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists, Dr. Mohammad Tariq, Dr. David Keelen, and Dr. Gabor Racz, recommend phenol blocks for pain patients that are no longer responding well to oral pain medications. The most common phenol blocks performed at our AAAASF-accredited facility include:

  • Stellate (ganglion) phenol blocks are injected into the sympathetic nerves in the neck near or in the larynx
  • Celiac (plexus) phenol blocks are infused into nerves in the stomach area (a common treatment for cancer patients)
  • Hypogastric (plexus) phenol blocks are injected into the back (near the hip bones) as a treatment for chronic pelvic pain for a variety of conditions

As an outpatient procedure in our surgical facility, a phenol block can be applied with a form of sedation. If you have questions or concerns about phenol blocks, please call our office and speak with one of our knowledgeable patient care coordinators. We can discuss the process, billing, follow-up appointments, and more at your request.
