A celiac plexus block is a procedure that involves injecting a local anesthetic (and sometimes a steroid medication, clonidine, or epinephrine) around or into the celiac plexus of nerves surrounding the main artery in the abdomen—the aorta. Patients who opt for a celiac plexus block will be given a local anesthesia and should expect little to no pain during the procedure. The procedure typically lasts anywhere from 10-30 minutes, and simply involves inserting a needle into the patient's skin and his or her deeper tissues. Once the procedure is complete, the patient will be sent home and can resume any daily activities the next day.
While relief will be evident soon after the procedure is complete, some patients may need to have multiple injections before they find the relief they need or want.
