Pain Management

Dr. Kenneth Wenz is a board-certified physician who has practiced pain management care in the Myrtle Beach community since 1999. Before his medical education, Dr. Wenz earned two undergraduate degrees from Niagara University in Lewiston, New York, and a master’s degree from The State University of New York at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York. In Buffalo, he earned his medical degree at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, where he also finished his medical internship. Dr. Wenz completed his training in South Carolina through an anesthesiology residency at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia. 

As a pain management physician, it is always Dr. Wenz’s goal to decrease the intensity of a patient’s pain and improve or maintain daily function. He approaches treatment individually, using multiple evidence-based methods in combination, including injections, non-opioid medications, physical therapy, home-based exercise, and more.

Dr. Wenz is available to see pain management patients in Myrtle Beach at our Carolina Forest Pain office.
