If there is anyone who could testify to the commonplace expression, “no pain, no gain,” it is Dr. Marvin Faulkner, D.O. The double board certified anesthesiologist and pain management physician has not only witnessed and treated the many facets of his patients’ physical pain, he has personally lived through many layers of personal pain for decades.
A former wrestling and Golden Glove boxing champion, he early on experienced the throb of intense training and stepping in and out of the ring. However, that discomfort only scratched the surface of the stinging emotional and psychological heartache that cut deeper than any punch ever thrown, as he experienced tragedy after tragedy in his life and in the lives of the people closest to him.
Dr. Faulkner currently resides in Kansas City, Mo., where he continues to help others with pain management — both through his medical practice and his written words.
