I finally found relief

By mharris

I suffer from a severe form of Raynaud's and Scleroderma. The circulation became so poor in my fingers, I was loosing sensation, function and developed ulcers. I was not able to work and on disability.
I was referred to a pain specialist, Dr Haruo Arita. He immediately scheduled me for a series of stellate ganglion blocks which dramatically broke the cycle of pain and gave me some relief. I was able to return to work and I and manage my pain.

The Dr., staff and nursing were so caring and perceptive to my needs, it was amazing. The professionalism of the staff was also outstanding.
I thank UCLA and these great employees for helping in my recovery.
