A celiac plexus block is an injection of local anesthetic into or around the celiac plexus of nerves that surrounds the aorta, the main artery in the abdomen. Normally these nerves control basic nerve functions. In certain conditions, these nerves can carry pain information from the gut or abdominal organ tissues back to the spinal cord and brain.
Celiac plexus block is a treatment often used for cancer pain and nerve pain in patients. Javery Pain Institute specializes in this type of treatment to restore the well-being of patients with cancer pain or those with nerve pain.
