Dr. Capone Receives Grant from Providence VA CfNN

Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Dr. Christy Capone, received a grant from the Providence VA's Center for Neurorestoration and Neurotechnology (CfNN) to pilot stellate ganglion block (SGB) paired with psychotherapy for the treatment of combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). SGB is an anesthesia procedure used to treat certain forms of pain. There is growing evidence that it may help Veterans with PTSD who have not benefitted from traditional treatments.
