Packers’ Team Physician Joins Bellin Health
McKenzie among NFL’s most respected medical professionals
The Green Bay Packers’ longtime team physician, Dr. Patrick McKenzie, has joined Bellin Health Sports Medicine and Orthopedics. He is based at Bellin Health Ashwaubenon, 1630 Commanche Ave.
“Dr. McKenzie has provided outstanding orthopedic and sports medicine care to the community for more than two decades as a partner of our health system,” said George Kerwin, Bellin Health president and CEO. “We’re pleased to advance our longstanding relationship with Dr. McKenzie to continue to enhance our services to the community.”
Named the NFL’s top physician in 2011, McKenzie is among the sport’s most respected medical professionals. He has served as president of the NFL Team Physician Society, and his additional professional affiliations include the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Sports Medicine Fellowship Society and the Wisconsin and Brown County medical societies.
Bellin Health is the official healthcare partner of the Green Bay Packers. In August, the team announced a Bellin Health sports medicine clinic will be part of the team’s development of the Titletown District immediately west of Lambeau Field and planned for completion in 2017.
“The proximity to the team’s facilities certainly heightens the level of convenience for Dr. McKenzie and the players needing injury evaluation and treatment,” said Kerwin. “The most prominent aspect of our
relationship with the Packers has been our shared desire to elevate the health and wellness of the
community. Our clinic will serve athletes of all abilities and will be a destination for those in need of excellence in sports medicine.”
McKenzie also serves as the team orthopedic physician for the UW Oshkosh Titans, and is a member of the WIAA Medical Advisory Committee — yet he remains committed to providing top-quality sports medicine and orthopedic care to individuals of all ages and backgrounds, in addition to youth, collegiate and professional athletes. His specialty interests include sports medicine, arthroscopy and ligament reconstruction.
McKenzie earned his undergraduate degree at St. John’s University. He attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) and completed his residency at MCW-affiliated hospitals. Trained by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, McKenzie completed his fellowship at the American Sports Medicine Institute in Birmingham, Ala.
