Konrad R. Kijewski, M.D.

Specializes in treating an array of pain conditions using a multimodal approach to treatment.

Dr. Kijewski is a double boarded interventional pain management specialist who treats numerous pain conditions.  His boards include Anesthesiology and Pain Management through the American Board of Anesthesiology.  Having served the Kentuckiana area for 12 years, previously working for The Pain Institute, Dr. Kijewski brings extensive knowledge and experience to The Center for Orthopedic Spine & Pain.

Dr.  Kijewski was born in Poland and grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa.  He is multilingual with fluency in Polish and Afrikaans in addition to English.  This enables him to reach these additional population groups helping patients feel more comfortable and at ease in describing their issues in their native languages.

Earning his medical degree from the most prestigious medical school in South Africa, the University of the Witwatersrand Medical School, Dr. Kijewski finished in the top 10% of his class.  He then emigrated to the United States where he completed his residency in Anesthesiology at the University of Louisville.  Dr. Kijewski went on to become an attending anesthesiologist where he educated residents in general anesthesiology and subspecialties including regional and obstetric anesthesia.  Following his residency, he completed his fellowship in Pain Management at the University of Louisville.

Dr. Kijewski manages a variety of conditions using multimodal and interventional pain techniques to minimize pain and optimize functionality for people suffering with pain.  Dr. Kijewski uses an individualized approach with patients that combines compassion, understanding and empathy to accurately diagnose the painful condition and find the most effective treatment options.

Helping you overcome pain one step at a time is key in achieving relief.  The goal is to create a center of excellence where patients can feel that they have a solution to their problem.  This comes with understanding neuromuscular conditions and the various options individuals have to get their lives back.  It is surprising to Dr. Kijewski that people come in thinking they only have a few options.  It is his goal to help patients understand that pain is not black and white.  “Pain is multifactorial and treatment is individually tailored to optimize daily activities and functionality”, says Dr. Kijewski.  “Once they have an understanding of the treatments offered, they can again have an optimistic outlook and functional restoration.”

Dr. Kijewski has seen the mismanagement of pain on too many occasions in the three countries he has lived. This is what ultimately drove him to the field of Pain Management.  With his international background and over a decade of refining therapeutic approaches, it has given him a unique insight. “I strive to treat patients compassionately and help them control pain with less reliance on addictive opioids”.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
