Dr. Gabor Racz 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.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I've been seeing Dr. Racz since 1991 (I travel from wherever I am living to get to TX)... he is world renown in RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, now known as Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome). I had been all over the country, butchered by several doctors, before finally receiving a correct diagnosis by Racz. He may come off as arrogant to some, but to me he walks on water! Cannot say enough great things about him! His son is great, too!
I was referred to Drs Racz and Raj, I usually saw Dr.Raj but I did see Dr.Racz on a couple of occasions. They diagnosed me with bilaterally sphenopalatine ganglion neuralgia...facial pain. I spent 5 years in pain before seeing them. I couldn't have asked for a better team, the two directors, the Pain Fellows, especially Drs Day and Loo. Everything happened just as they said. They controlled 80% of my pain and the rest with drugs. Today I am pain free as well as drug free. Thank you for giving me my life back.
I had Trigeminal Neuralgia, and every second of my waking life for 14 months out of 20 months I was in excruciating pain. He put in a neuro stimulator which required a surgery that had never before been preformed. I no longer suffer, and am able to enjoy time with my family. He is one of the best doctors I have ever met.
