Dr. Villarreal was raised in Katy, Texas, and is a graduate of Katy High School. He also graduated from the University of Houston, where he received a football scholarship and was given the Honorable Mention All-American Award. After attending The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston where he received his M.D., he went on to Anesthesia Residency at the prestigious Tulane University. During his residency, he developed a true passion in caring for patients with difficult to treat pain. After completing his Anesthesia residency, he opted to obtain further formal training in Pain Medicine; completing his Pain Medicine Fellowship at LSU.
Ever since leaving his hometown to train in New Orleans, Dr. Villarreal has wished to return to Katy. Not only to take care for his own but also to raise his family as well. He not only works in Katy but also lives in Katy, where he is not just a part of the medical community but the community as a whole. Dr. Villarreal is double Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology.
At Katy Pain Specialists, we do not believe the answer to pain is to throw pain medicines at the problem to just cover it up. Pain comes from a multitude of sources, and we believe in the tested and proven multi-modal approach. With injections, medicines, therapy and other minimally invasive measures, we can manage your pain and return your quality of life. We believe in empowering our patients while making them part of the treatment plan in our team approach.
