A/Proff Hogg supervises a co-ordinated range of services, linking in hospital acute and interventional pain management with outpatient multidisciplinary services. Therapies offered include interventional procedures for cancer and non-cancer pain and allied health based pain management programs. His research interests include early identification and management of people with acute pain at risk of developing chronic disabling pain.

A/Prof Hogg is a current board member of Painaustralia and was a Past-President of the Australian Pain Society. He is coordinating the Waiting in Pain project, a systematic investigation into the provision of persistent pain services in Australia.

A/Prof Hogg spent his early post-graduate years at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, including the bulk of his Anaesthesia training. His overseas experience was gained at Mayo Clinic in USA, prior to 5 years at the Prince of Wales and Sydney Children’s Hospitals, for specialist experience in Pain Medicine. Upon returning to Victoria, he has developed a specialist pain medicine practice based at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, with roles in student and specialist education, policy development and supporting outer-urban and rural services. A small private practice is developing to complement these roles which includes collaborations with like-minded pain clinicians and providing complimentary services to surgical and anaesthesia colleagues.
