PTSD Treatment Procedures

Ketamine Infusions

This is an IV infusion of the drug ketamine. We use it to treat some forms of neuropathic pain. That's a type of pain you have when your nervous system is damaged or not working well.

 

Ketamine infusion therapy can be very effective for some types of chronic pain. It can work when other methods haven't. For more info, talk to your doctor.

Stellate Ganglion Block

A stellate ganglion nerve block is an injection that numbs branches of nerves in your neck. This helps doctors find and treat a number of problems linked to the nerves. Treatment may require a series of injections.

In preparation for the procedure, you lie on your back. You are given medicine to make you feel relaxed. The skin and tissue of your neck is numbed.
