Spinal Cord Stimulation Kennesaw, GA

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Chronic pain is how your brain interprets signals sent by the nerves in your body. Millions of nerve receptors and pathways connect to your brain. Most of these nerves use the spinal cord as the superhighway to direct signals to the brain. When chronic pain cannot be stopped through repairing the source, another option is interrupting the pain signals to the brain. One advanced treatment for chronic pain management is spinal cord stimulation, and it is available at Medici Spine & Pain.

What is Spinal Cord Stimulation?

The concept behind spinal cord stimulation, or SCS, is to interfere with pain signals sent by the nerves to the brain. Using a low electrical current, the treatment interrupts pain signals by targeting the affected nerves. Instead of pain, the patient feels paresthesia from the electrical stimulus, a mild, tingling sensation that is not unpleasant. SCS can be used as a permanent therapy by implanting a device under the skin that targets the affected nerves. It is controlled by a remote that can turn it on, off or adjust the level of impulses.

Spinal cord stimulation can be used for several different types of chronic pain, helping minimize the use of pain medications and improve function. Neuropathic pain is the most common pain treated with this method, including complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), lumbar/cervical radiculopathy, diabetic neuropathy and other types of arm, leg or back pain.

How is SCS Performed?

To determine whether a patient is a good candidate for SCS, a temporary device is used. Probes are placed under the skin to target the affected nerves near the spinal or dorsal column for a trial period. If the trial period is successful and the patient and doctor determine it will be beneficial for pain management, a permanent device can be implanted. The procedure to implant the device and pair the remote to control the impulses takes about an hour under local anesthesia.

Spinal cord stimulation has been a successful pain management treatment for many people with chronic neuropathic pain. It is also covered by many insurance plans, including Medicare. If you are interested in learning more about SCS and whether it could help minimize pain and improve your quality of life, contact one of our clinics in the Atlanta area.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

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 Spine & Pain 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.
