Dr. Ryan Tran, MD

Pain Management Physician and Interventional Pain Specialist

Dr. Ryan Tran is double board-certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology.  After completing medical school at Texas Tech School of Medicine in 2003, Dr. Tran completed his residency in anesthesiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston in 2007.

Subsequently in 2008, Dr. Tran completed his pain fellowship at the prestigious pain management fellowship program at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center.   In the pain world, the Texas Tech pain management fellowship is well thought of because of Dr. Gabor Racz.  Dr. Racz is considered to be one of the founding fathers of the specialty of pain medicine. Dr. Tran was fortunate enough to train under him and to have learned his innovative techniques and many “secrets” towards managing patients in pain.

After finishing his pain fellowship in 2009, Dr. Tran began working at Scott & White Hospital in Killeen, Texas as an attending physician.  During his time there, Dr. Tran helped thousands of patients in Central Texas.  Since his pain clinic in Killeen was directly across from Fort Hood (the largest military installation in the world), he was especially honored to have helped many active military soldiers and veterans find innovative options for their chronic pain. 

While working at Baylor Scott & White, Dr. Tran was also actively involved in training residents and pain fellows as an assistant professor at Texas A&M Health Sciences Center College of Medicine. Worth mentioning, Dr. Tran was one of the original four attendings who helped start the pain management fellowship at Texas A&M Health Sciences Center College of Medicine at Baylor Scott & White in 2012. He enjoyed teaching his students the art of pain medicine, the innovative techniques he learned from Dr. Racz, and new ones he acquired over the last decade.

Dr. Tran was on staff teaching residents and treating patients at Baylor Scott & White until the end of 2022 when he moved his family to the DFW area to be closer to family.  He is married to a supportive and loving wife and is the father to two active boys. When he is not caring for patients, Dr. Tran enjoys getting bested in golf by his two elementary school aged boys who play golf competitively.  It is Dr. Tran's desire to guide patients towards compassionate and innovative care.  He looks forward to sharing all of the “secrets” that he has learned with his patients and colleagues.
