A Splanchnic Nerve Block is an injection of medication that helps relieve upper abdominal pain, commonly due to cancer or chronic pancreatitis. The Splanchnic nerves are located on both sides of your spine and can carry pain to your brain from organs in the abdomen.
A needle will be injected into the correct area of your splanchnic nerve using a local anesthetic. This procedure takes about 45 minutes and can cause significant pain relief.
