Since being established in the US in 2020, Stella has used innovative biological interventions to target the physical injury caused by emotional trauma and mental health challenges like anxiety, depression, PTSD, and stress. 

Globally, Stella has treated over 8,000 patients and introduced the dual sympathetic reset  (DSR) protocol – the advanced Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) procedure developed by Dr. Eugene Lipov, to treat nerve fibres are associated with the "fight or flight" biological response.


Stella Centre expanded its operations to Australia in 2021. With a highly skilled team of interventional medical practitioners, Stella Australia has successfully treated hundreds of patients with the DSR SGB advanced technique.  In September 2023, Stella’s clinical team published a retrospective study on the Australian experience.

Changing PTSD to PTSI

It’s an injury, not just a disorder:  Dr. Eugene Lipov’s passion and commitment can be further demonstrated through his vigorous advocacy efforts, seeking to redefine “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” to "Post Traumatic Stress Injury"  and therefore, reducing the stigma that is associated with PTSD.

Take the Symptoms Questionnaire Created By Experts

Stella aims to heal the injury instead of just managing the symptoms. Stella's symptom questionnaire combines measures used by the American Psychological Association such as the PCL for PTSD, GAD-7 for Anxiety, PHQ for Depression, to help make sense of what you might be experiencing.

Notably, these standardised assessments are also utilised by mental health practitioners in Australia, ensuring their relevance and applicability. Take the symptoms questionnaire below and then schedule your free introductory consult with one of our care coordinators.
