Physician Partners of America Is Proud to Announce the Addition of Former Super Bowl Champion, Dr. John Michels

Dr. John Michels, formerly of the 1997 Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers, sustained two right knee injuries while playing the position of starting left tackle which ultimately ended his NFL career. This career ending injury led Dr. Michels, born in La Jolla, California, into the medical field where he attended the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California where he received his medical degree in 2008. Dr. Michels completed a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. He completed a fellowship in Interventional Pain Medicine at the University of California, Irvine, and is a diplomat of the American Board of Radiology.

Dr. Michels is the only Fellowship Trained, Board Certified Interventional Pain Management physician in the world who is a Super Bowl Champion. His passion for sports and medicine, has allowed him to focus on a medical career that will help prevent, treat, and rehabilitate injuries so that all patients and athletes can continue to perform at their highest level and live pain free. Dr. Michels formerly worked at Newport Beach Headache and Pain, in New Port Beach, California, and is now one of the newest physicians at Texas Pain Relief Group, an affiliate of Physician Partners of America in the Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex. Texas Pain Relief Group is dedicated to helping individuals become pain free, by not just treating the pain, but by treating the whole person.
