There are so many treatments for PTSD available out there to help you overcome this condition. At PTSD Group we offer The Stellate Ganglion Block or SGB Procedure, which has proven very effective when treating all types of PTSD symptoms. The risk factors are minimal and there are no major side-effects. Despite your Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder cause, the anesthetic injected may be able to help you gain control over your life again.

Prior to scheduling the SGB procedure, one standardized questionnaire for PTSD and levels of Anxiety must be completed.  Our doctors will review the results and decide whether you are a good candidate for the SGB injection.

Approximately 70-80%, whereas conventional treatment only has a 20-30% success rate. It generally works by dulling down a person’s fight or flight mechanism, which can help them to eliminate various symptoms associated with the disorder

The SGB Procedure

Local anesthesia is first injected to numb the neck area. The location of the stellate ganglion is then identified under fluoroscopic guidance. A single needle is then placed just above the collar of the C6 bone and the active medication is injected next to the stellate ganglion.

What our patients have said about us after the injection.

The doctors at the PTSD Group have carefully and thoughtfully designed the SGB experience to treat patients with the highest quality care in a calming and peaceful environment. After I had the SGB treatment, my mind was set free. I was able to laugh and smile again. Thank you for using your expertise to help people thrive in their lives!
Thank you PTSD group for changing my life, I just wish I found you guys years ago.I am so greatful for the whole process. I still can’t believe just one simple injection had so much positive effect in my life. I came in, got a injection and my life in less than 4 minutes went back to feeling back to where I was 12 years ago. I can’t even explain how great I feel about myself. It’s still feels like I’m living in a dream. I’m now living in the present and not the past. My kids are so happy to have the old mom back and my husband says he got the love of his life back. I am now 6 months PTSD free!! Dr Jesse is an amazing doctor and I can’t thank him and his team enough.
Thank You so much for this opportunity. I am 46 years old and for the first time in my life I can really LIVE! I have absolutely no anxiety, compulsiveness, angry outbursts, and I am truly HAPPY. Although It would’ve been nice to know about this sooner in life, I am so very appreciative to have the experience. Thank you so very much!!
After receiving the injection I can honestly say my life has changed direction completely for the better. My sleep has improved by 100% from 2 to 3 hours to a full 6 hours uninterrupted. My anxiety is the lowest it has ever been in my life. So far over a week since I received the injection I have had zero combat related nightmares and intrusive thoughts have also gone down, I'm genuinely happy. I have not felt this way since before combat and words cant explain the pressure lifted off my shoulders. As for the staff they are nothing short of amazing, profession, kind, words cant express what they do for people. They truly are saving lives and I acant thank them enough. Sgt. Steven Raimondi USMC
