WHO IS DR GODWIN MADUKA, LION OF AFRICA?
Knowledge they say, is power. This is only true if one understands it’s translation and application to real life situations._
*Dr. Godwin Maduka could be described as a total package. Like a meteor, he was destined by providence to burn so that the world may be lighted. He has been described as one whose magnanimity has touched every sphere of human endeavor within and outside his immediate environment.*
Born to the family of Maduka in Umuchukwu community in Orumba South LGA of Anambra State, he had his early childhood education in Nigeria before leaving for the United States of America under scholarship where he studied Chemistry, Pharmacy and later on medicine.
He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from Rust College, Mississippi in 1984. In 1988, he obtained his Doctorate degree in Pharmacy from Mercer University, Georgia. Earned his Doctorate degree in Medicine in 1993 from the University of Tennessee. Completed his Residency and Post-Graduate training at the Beth Israel Hospital, Harvard Medical School in 1997 and was certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology in 1998.
From defeating a background of excruciating poverty, to qualifying as a Chemist, obtaining a Doctorate degree in Pharmacy and a Post Graduate Medical Degree from Harvard is not only mind blowing, but inspiring too. In about 25 years of practice Dr. Maduka has built six hospitals in Las Vegas Nevada area. His Las Vegas Pain Institute has been rated the best in Pain Management in the United States. He’s an adjunct professor at Touro University School of Osteopathic Medicine
Dr. Maduka is the *CEO* and Medical Director of *Las Vegas Pain Institute and Medical Centre*, which is the largest Pain Treatment Centre in Nevada, US. He has become a global authority in chronic and acute pain management, anesthesiology, and interventional pain management.

Being a beneficiary of quality education, he has continued to support and encourage younger generations in their various fields and levels of academic pursuit. Remarkably, he has continued to award full scholarships to hundreds of indigent students in his town, Anambra State and all over Eastern Nigeria.
Whoever says _“nothing lasts forever”_ is simply ignorant of over a million ways Dr. Maduka has touched lives. When he speaks, minds are inspired by his story of how he evolved from a humble background, translated his education into success and dedicates it all to the service of God and mankind.
Asides being a successful renowned medical practitioner, Dr Maduka has remained a focused, firm, fantastic and God fearing humanitarian.
