Virtual Doctor’s Lounge: An Evening with Dr. Eugene Lipov

Learn more about SGB to treat PTSD

Recognize Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day on June 27 at a Virtual Doctor’s Lounge event discussing an alternative way to treat PTSD. 

You may not be aware that an effective treatment for PTSD can be offered by anesthetists, not psychiatrists.

By manipulating the autonomic nervous system with stellate ganglion blocks, conditions such as PTSD and long COVID that may be bad enough to drive some patients to seek MAiD, may become reversible, or at least, bearable.

It’s one reason our guest, Dr. Eugene Lipov, pioneer of SGB treatment for PTSD, advocates for replacing the term disorder with the word injury, to create PTSI rather than PTSD. By doing so, he invites the hope for recovery through language. The language of medicine matters and labels can both help and hinder the healing process.

Join us for an illuminating discussion on the power of off-label prescribing through the lens of SGB. Share your personal experiences using off-label drugs and devices to broaden the evening’s discussion, including stories of negative outcomes from what may once have been considered theoretically sound ideas. After all, PTSD can also arise from medical encounters gone bad. We will hear how those injuries may be successfully managed through the innovative techniques that Dr. Lipov has been refining for almost two decades.
