Precise Care is First Practice in Orange County to Offer SPG Block
Date:8/14/2013

Orange County, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

Precise Care recently became the first practice to offer sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block as a treatment for patients who suffer from chronic migraine headaches, cluster headaches, and chronic daily headaches. The treatment also may have a beneficial effect on moods, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

“The development of a new soft catheter approach to the procedure has revolutionized the effectiveness and reproducibility of the procedure itself,” said Gaurav K. Goswami, MD, president and chief executive officer of Precise Care.

The procedure begins when a small amount of viscous lidocaine is applied to the inner aspect of the nostril on each side to anesthetize the nasal passages. The special catheter is then carefully inserted under X-ray guidance into the anatomically correct position, and an inner catheter is then deployed. This allows the instillation of a small amount of liquid lidocaine into the upper nasal passages. The procedure is then repeated on the other side to help ensure complete effectiveness.

The treatment results in profound pain relief and improvement in mood that can last for weeks and even months.

Side effects from the treatment are minimal and may include a bitter taste in the mouth from the local anesthetic dripping down the back of the throat from the nose. There will likely be numbness in the back of the throat from the local anesthetic.

“Early results indicate treatment success in more than 80 percent of the patients who have undergone the procedure to treat chronic headache problems,” added Dr. Goswami. “Also, initial data indicate that the SPG block could prove effective for patients who suffer from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.”
