Dr. Edit Rácz has more than 30 years of experience in treating chronic pain. In 1994, she initiated and organized the first congress of the World Institute of Pain (WIP) together with Professors Prithvy Raj, Gábor B. Rácz, and Jim Heavner. She is one of the most significant figures in pain management in Hungary and was the first in the country to pass the Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice (FIPP) examination.

From 2013, she served as an examiner for FIPP and was the president of the WIP Hungarian Section until 2023. Between 1999 and 2018, she was the chief anesthesiologist, intensive care, and pain management specialist at the Péterfy Hospital in Budapest.

She has participated in numerous training programs in the United States, where she learned the latest methods of minimally invasive interventions for pain management.

Currently, she practices at the PSI Pain Clinic, where she performs and teaches X-ray guided interventional pain management procedures to colleagues from Hungary and abroad.

Her main areas of interest include the treatment of spinal hernias and post-surgical spinal syndrome with minimally invasive techniques (since 1997), and among regenerative therapies, PRP and prolotherapy (since 2006).
