Author Biography

Trevor Campbell is a family physician who studied medicine at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, before emigrating to Canada, where he became interested in treatments for chronic pain. He has worked in multidisciplinary pain management and opioid reduction programs, and has served as medical director for a leading pain management provider in Western Canada.

Within a short period, it became obvious that there was an enormous need for a book on chronic pain that provided a clear, manageable plan, inspired hope and helped motivate by appealing not only to the mind but especially to the heart.

When not involved with medical matters, he enjoys literature and is an avid hiker, cyclist, and traveler.
