Want Relief From Back Joint Pain?

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.

The pain specialist physicians at PMIR Medical Center know that 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.

Hypogastric plexus block injections are minimally invasive procedures that:

  • Can relieve pain originating in your bladder, descending colon, ovaries, perineum, prostate, rectum, testicles, urethra, uterus, vagina, and vulva.
  • Are guided by fluoroscopy—a viewing instrument that uses real-time X-rays––to inject a solution to reduce pain and inflammation.

The Benefits of Hypogastric Plexus Block Injections for Pain

A hypogastric plexus block is a fast-acting, minimally invasive procedure that is effective at treating chronic pelvic pain.

With this nerve plexus block, some patients will experience pain relief for weeks while others will experience a reduction of pain for several years.
