What Are Hypogastric Plexus Blocks?
Your hypogastric plexus is a bundle of nerves near the base of your spinal cord. It consists of a network of interconnecting, radiating nerve fibers containing a variety of pain points typically related to a malignancy.
Blocking these nerves from pain can prevent you from feeling discomfort in your lower back and hips. When appropriate, they will recommend a hypogastric plexus block injection that can result in effective pain relief for treating cancer pain and pelvic area pain.
