Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS) Kennesaw, GA

Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS)

There are options for controlling certain types of chronic pain without the use of medication or surgery. Interfering with the delivery of pain signals to the brain can be an effective pain management strategy, without the use of narcotics or other medications. A minimally-invasive option is percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS). This advanced minimally-invasive treatment is available at Medici Medical Arts.

Electrical pulses or currents can interrupt pain signals and desensitize nerves to help control pain. This technique has been used with success with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) that emits an electrical current through electrodes placed on the skin near the affected nerves. PENS uses the same method. However, it uses a low voltage electrical current that is delivered into the fatty tissue under the skin near the nerve producing the pain signal. A thin needle is used to target the electrical current close to the nerve for more direct and precise delivery.

PENS for Neuropathic Chronic Pain

PENS is used to manage neuropathic chronic pain conditions such as peripheral diabetic neuropathy, nerve hypersensitivity, post-surgical pain and neuropathic headaches. The procedure does not damage the nerves but is aimed at desensitizing them to reduce pain signals sent to the brain. To administer the treatment, the skin near the targeted nerves is numbed with a local anesthetic. Acupuncture-like needles are inserted into the fatty tissue near the nerve and a low voltage generator delivers an electrical current to the needles. Most PENS treatments last less than an hour.

PENS can provide reduced chronic pain for approximately four months after the treatment, and it can be repeated to sustain the effects. We utilize PENS and other treatment modalities to give patients maximum relief from chronic neuropathic pain. To learn more about PENS and other pain management treatments, contact one of our clinics located in the greater Atlanta area.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
