Inguinal Nerve Block
Ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, and genitofemoral nerves are collectively known as ‘border nerves’ because these nerves supply the skin between the abdomen and the thigh.
Because of the course of these nerves, they are at risk of injury from the lower abdominal incision (appendectomy, inguinal herniorrhaphy) or trocar insertion performed in laparoscopic surgery. Patients with neuropathic pain following injury to the nerve may present with groin pain that may extend to the scrotum or testicle in men, labia in women, and the medial aspect of the thigh.
At Pain Spa Dr. Krishna performs inguinal nerve blocks under real time ultrasound guidance, using state of the art equipment. This ensures 100% accuracy and our complication rates are extremely low.
