SGB is an established procedure that has been utilized since the 1940s, and research has shown that it can be an effective treatment for reducing fatigue and other Long Covid symptoms. Additionally, it can help treat other symptoms such as pain, sweating, and blood pressure fluctuations.

Using a modern ultrasound device to visualize nerves and inject a local anesthetic on your nerve, Dr. Otono Silva targets cervical sympathetic chain activity and “reboots” the autonomic nervous system. The use of ultrasound technology during SGB procedures allows him to guide the needle with precision and avoid any of the sensitive structures in your neck, allowing for accurate treatment of the stellate ganglion.

Following the SGB treatment for Long Covid symptoms, you may experience temporary side effects, including Horner’s Syndrome and others. Despite this, studies have demonstrated that SGB is well tolerated and typically results in few side effects, which you can manage through rest and avoiding strenuous exercise, as advised by Dr. Silva.

Dr. Otono Silva is committed to aiding you in preserving your joints, enhancing your strength and function, reducing or eliminating pain, and improving your overall quality of life in the long term. Through the use of evidence-based practices, he and his team work with you to support your body’s innate healing abilities.

“Stellate ganglion block injections are safely performed on an outpatient basis at our private facility under real-time ultrasound guidance,” said a spokesperson. “The procedure itself typically takes less than 10 minutes to perform and is followed by a short recovery period before you are discharged. You will need a driver to take you home from this procedure.”
