Hypogastric Plexus Blocks are advanced nonsurgical pain relief treatments performed by the region’s leading pain management experts at Nassau Anesthesia Associates, P.C., a medical group affiliated with Winthrop-University Hospital on Long Island, NY.
In addition to providing anesthesia care for patients before, during, and after surgery, Nassau Anesthesia Associates has anesthesiologists with advanced training in the field of pain management. We utilize the most advanced nonsurgical techniques for treating acute and chronic pain that hasn’t responded to more conservative treatments.
A hypogastric plexus block is an injection of steroids and pain medication used to control pelvic pain which doesn’t respond to oral medication. The hypogastric plexus is a bundle of nerves located near the bottom of the spinal cord which supplies the structures and organs in the lower part of the abdomen. These groups of nerves all join together at a particular point before dividing again to supply the pelvic organs. The long-acting hypogastric plexus injection blocks these nerves from carrying pain to the pelvic organs.
