Dr. Benedict Konzen has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.
- Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
A physiatrist is a doctor who specializes in the rehabilitation and physiological treatment of patients with an illness or injury that affects movement.
These specialists have extensive knowledge of the nerves, muscles, bone, and brain. Physiatrists are also experts in pain medication.
Some common conditions that physiatrists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, neurological and spinal disorders and injuries, chronic pain disorders, like fibromyalgia, and musculoskeletal issues, like broken bones and torn muscles.
These physicians also often coordinate a team of other specialists in order to maximize the patient's recovery, such as occupational therapists, speech therapists, neurologists, orthopedists, and counselors.

Dr. Konzen came to visit my father in his room at MD Anderson. My father was at an all-time low emotionally. On this day, my father said that he wanted to go home and fade away. He figured that his cancer was out of control and that he was too deconditioned to ever get out of the hospital, much less ever see home again. Dr. Konzen spent about 45 minutes talking with my father. He took the time to find out that my 82 year old father drove a bull dozer and kept up with his ranch before getting cancer. Dr. Konzen was able to get my father on the rehab floor of the hospital. He said that his team only needed 1 week to recondition my father and get him ready for the next round of treatment. He was right. It only took about a week. My father is still with us and did not give up, because this doctor cared enough to listen.
