Dr. Podgorski is dual board certified in interventional pain medicine and anesthesiology. He earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College (Sidney Kimmel Medical College) in Philadelphia, PA, and completed his anesthesia residency at the University of Miami where he was recognized as the Research Resident of the Year. He went on to complete an interventional pain management fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Dr. Podgorski is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care to alleviate pain and suffering for both chronic and cancer pain patients. His ultimate goals are to improve the quality of life for his patients, to advance therapeutic options for cancer and end-of-life pain patients, and to help reduce the burden of pain at the end-of-life. Dr. Podgorski specializes in Intrathecal Drug Delivery (Pain Pumps) for chronic pain, spasticity, and cancer pain. He is honored to be part of the Center for Pain and Supportive Care (CPSC) team and dedicated to building on the legacy created by CPSC’s founder Dr. Lisa Stearns.v
