About Us

Epimed is a development, design, manufacturing, and distribution company creating innovative medical products for over 30 years.

Epimed’s focus is to provide effective specialty devices at a high quality in the areas of pain management and regional anesthesia.

In 1985, Epimed International was developed in Lubbock, TX by Gabor J. Racz. It was created in an effort to promote the Racz® Catheter System. This system is used to perform the procedure called Epidural Lysis of Adhesions, also know as the Racz® Procedure. Consolidation of manufacturing, sales and distribution for the Racz® Catheter system and other specialty products occurred in the early 1990’s.

With the manufacturing plant in Johnstown, NY and a facility in the Dallas, TX, we maintain an elite quality system designed to conform to the US FDA QSR contained with 21 CFR 820, certified to ISO 13485:2012 and CMDR SOR/98-282. We are a worldwide resource for OEM manufacturing, developing safe specialty products for small scale to several Fortune 500 companies within a number of medical specialties around the globe.

We support continuing education of physicians, develop and sponsor clinical studies. We also participate in local, national and international meetings and workshops.

Event Calendar

Nysora International Symposium
Mar 23 – Mar 25 all-day
Pain School International – Course 1
May 12 – May 14 all-day
Pain School International - Course 1 @ Budapest | Hungary

Pain School International was created by a group of highly regarded pain physicians from around the world.  It is providing a training program for pain management.


Who is it for:  It is designed to train physicians who have no formal pain education in their countries, and for those who wish to strengthen their skills in interventional pain management. The curriculum provides comprehensive training in the assessment and treatment of chronic pain from the basics to advanced pain treatment.


What/when is the program:  Four sequential, focused, weekend workshops and live patient demos are designed to train doctors in a wide range of pain procedures, with time in between each session to apply the freshly learned skills to their own practice.  The sessions will be in May, June, August and November, in Budapest.


How does it tie in to WIP:  The course is designed as initial training, and therefore complementary to the World Institute of Pain (WIP) administered review courses.  It aims to prepare and channel physicians to eventually participate in the examination and to earn the prestigious title of Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice (FIPP).


Who are the faculty:  The faculty at Pain School International are highly experienced, both as practitioners and as teachers, and they share a great passion for improving pain management worldwide. They are accessible at the interactive lectures, in the lab, on-line, and during breaks, because our goal is not just to inform, but also to inspire.
