SGB Treatment Center

The SGB Treatment Center is an official ACGME accredited training site for the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for Anesthesia-Pain Medicine Fellowship.

One of our missions at SGB Treatment Center is to educate all clinicians on the benefits of Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) and to share our expertise with select military physicians learning how to perfect their SGB treatment.

Our standard goes well beyond the technical skills to perform a safe, effective ultrasound-guided nerve block. It’s about understanding trauma and its effects on the body and mind, which CAN be healed.

Teaching select military physicians both the demanding skills required, as well as how taking the time to talk with patients, is a critical factor in getting the best results.
