Consulting Pain Management Physician

Office: Santa Cruz

Dr. Poree holds the  position of Clinical Professor in the Department of Anesthesia at the University of California in  San Francisco where he serves as the director of the Neuromodulation service.  He started his career in the pain field at UC Berkeley where he earned his PhD and investigated the pain-relieving properties of compounds found naturally in the human body.  He continued his pain research during his postdoctoral training in the department of biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins where he studied how spinal cord stimulation activates the pain control circuits in the spinal cord.  He decided to apply his basic science research to medical practice and enrolled in the medical degree program at Stanford University where he earned his medical degree and completed his residency in anesthesia while continuing to conduct research on new non-opioid based pain medications.  He then completed an interventional pain fellowship at UCSF.   He worked in private practice for 15 years in Santa Cruz county during which time he also served on the Board of Directors for the North American Neuromodulation Society and the California Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.  He served as a primary investigator for the FDA PMA  dorsal root ganglion stimulator trial and continues to work with various companies on the development of new neuromodulation devices.  He was recently recruited back to UCSF to direct the neuromodulation program but continues to provide consult services 1 day a week in Santa Cruz.
