Quick, simple, and comfortable in-office procedure.
In as little as a few minutes, the new SphenoCath® device and procedure for administering a sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block provides most patients with immediate relief of headache pain with a simple, gentle, comfortable in-office procedure.

For most, the procedure is comfortable, while others may briefly feel a very slight nasal irritation. This device allows a low risk, simple procedure that is a pain management game-changer for anyone who experiences four or more severe headaches a year.

Low cost, and covered by most insurance companies and Medicare.
With a desire to improve the quality of life for pain sufferers, the makers of the SphenoCath® device are driven to keep costs affordable. You’ll find most insurance companies, as well as Medicare, cover the procedure. In addition, if you’re currently taking medicine for migraines, this simple procedure may over time replace the need for migraine narcotics (which is better for you, your wallet, and your health). In fact, one SPG block treatment using the SphenoCath® device may cost approximately no more than one month of migraine meds. Every patient is different, and while some may not find immediate relief, others may experience relief lasting days, weeks or even months.
