Overview

"This is a personal narrative, a record of my passage among victims of chronic pain and the discoveries that have come from those encounters. I write for physicians, nurses, therapists, and caregivers, but mostly, I write for you who suffer the disease. I know you very well, perhaps as well as anybody in the world. I have listened to your stories with patience and attention, and I have been greatly rewarded. You have trusted me with the deep recesses of your thoughts and fears, and the memories of the dreadful experiences that are so often the origin of chronic pain. I have treated thousands of you and I believe I have some understanding of your illness. I offer a series of essays about people like you who suffer chronic pain. From their case histories, I derive certain conclusions. Some conclusions are bold and imaginative. Some are disturbing and frightful. Not all of them will apply to you, but some certainly will. My wish is that you gain greater understanding of your illness, for only understanding it will you conquer it." —Robert T. Cochran Jr., MD

Meet the Author

A graduate of Vanderbilt University Medical School, Robert T. Cochran Jr., MD, completed his residency in internal medicine and neurology at the University of Texas and Duke University. In 1963, he founded his private medical practice, and over the course of many years has treated thousands of patients with chronic pain.
This experience, in conjunction with that gained as co-director of the Pain Center at Centennial Hospital (Nashville) in the 1990s, led Dr. Cochran to make ground-breaking links between pain and various psychiatric disorders. His first book, Understanding Chronic Pain, explored these relationships.
Dr. Cochran continues his active medical practice in Nashville, where he resides with his wife, Donna.
