    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Macario studies health care economics & outcomes, with a special focus on surgery and anesthesia. He is well known for helping develop the field of operating room management, and is keenly interested in the cost-effectiveness analyses of drugs and devices. For the past decade Dr. Macario has added medical education as a research priority to better understand methods to best teach students and residents.

  • M Bruce MacIver

    M Bruce MacIver

    Professor (Research) of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study drug effects on the nervous system. Cellular, synaptic and molecular drug actions are investigated using electrophysiological and pharmacological tools in cortical/hippocampal brain slice preparations. We are also interested in mechanisms of neuronal integration and synchronization, especially related to patterns of EEG activity seen in vivo and in brain slices.

  • Kristen Klepac MacKenzie, MD

    Kristen Klepac MacKenzie, MD

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine

    BioDr. Kristen MacKenzie is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain Medicine. Dr. MacKenzie graduated AOA from medical school at UCSF and then completed her anesthesia residency and pain medicine fellowships at Stanford. She works at the Stanford Pain Management Center with specialty interests in chronic pelvic and abdominal pain, as well as peripartum pain. She is part of the Stanford Pelvic Health Center for interdisciplinary, multimodal care.

    She also teaches in the Stanford Medical School as the pain team lead for clinical rotations and serves a Clinical Continuity Clerkship Instructor. Additionally, Dr. MacKenzie completed the Clinical Teaching Seminar Series (CTSS) Honors Scholars Program focusing on education of non-anesthesia trained pain medicine fellows on inpatient pain management curriculum, which was a project supported by the Anesthesia Teaching Awards Scholar Program.

    Clinical focus:

    Pelvic pain, due to multiple causes including:
    Painful Bladder Syndrome/ Interstitial cystitis/ Dysuria
    Pelvis Congestion Syndrome
    Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
    Pudendal Nerve Pain
    Rectal/Anal Pain
    Vulvar Pain/ Vulvodynia/ Vaginismus

    Nerve entrapment syndromes, including hernia nerve entrapment

    Post-partum and Peri-partum pain
    Abdominal pain
    Musculoskeletal pain

    She focuses treatment plans around ultrasound and fluoroscopy procedures, non-opioid pain medications, non-drug treatments such as pain psychology, acupuncture, massage, movement therapy and physical therapy.

    Edward R. Mariano, MD, MAS, FASA, FASRA

    Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
    On Partial Leave from 06/02/2024 To 07/13/2024

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy clinical research interests include the development of techniques and patient care pathways to improve postoperative pain control and other surgical outcomes. I am particularly interested in using regional anesthesiology, the science and practice of modulating nerve transmission in the central neuraxis or within peripheral nerves, to produce target-specific and opioid-sparing pain relief and enhance recovery after surgery or injury.
