Dr. Paul Brand (July 17, 1914 – July 8, 2003), was a
pioneer in developing tendon transfer techniques for use in the hands
of those with leprosy. He was the first physician to appreciate that
leprosy did not cause the rotting away of tissues, but was the loss of the
sensation of pain which made sufferers susceptible to injury. Brand contributed
extensively to the fields of hand surgery and hand therapy through his
publications and lectures, and wrote popular autobiographical books about his
childhood, his parents’ missionary work, and his philosophy about the valuable
properties of pain. One of his best known books, co-written with Philip
Yancey, is Pain: The Gift Nobody Wants (1993), republished in
1997 as The Gift of Pain.
