Splanchnic nerve block is a minimally invasive procedure that targets the nerves that innervate the deep abdomen (or gut area). This includes pain associated with the internal organs such as the pancreas, gallbladder, stomach, kidneys, liver and intestines. This procedure is not considered surgery. It involves precision delivery of medication to the target sight under image guidance. It has been shown to be an effective option for those suffering from deep abdominal pain.
