About David H. Michel, MD

  • Dr. Michel is a native Austinite and a graduate of Westwood High School. When he is not working, Dr. Michel enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and son. Their family enjoys outings to the dog park and finding family-friendly outdoor activities. He also enjoys trying new restaurants and “spending some time with a golf club in my hands!” He couldn’t be happier to be back in Austin!

I have chosen the profession of Orthopedic Surgery so that I could have the ability to come to know people, their goals, and do my best to get them back to the activities that bring them joy. I am very conservative when treating my patients, exhausting all nonoperative treatments before discussing surgery. I believe that an educated patient is a happy patient. I work hard to build reasonable expectations so my patients know what to expect. Should a patient decide to move forward with surgery, it is my goal to remain as minimally invasive as possible while correcting their problem, and to provide them the support and access they need after surgery to facilitate a full recovery.

    I appreciated getting to see my surgeon because this was my first visit after my surgery. I was able to ask him all about my surgery. Dr Michel is so nice, professional & doesn’t make his patients feel rushed. He was very thorough in letting me know what I need to do & not do for my recovery.

    Dr. Michel is great! Super knowledgeable and detailed with his practice. Has been a wonderful experience being cared for by him and his staff. My hip has improved tremendously within these few weeks and it wouldn't be possible w/o their help. I can't thank them enough!

    As in past appointments, everyone in the office was efficient & friendly.

    I appreciate my visit today not to be what the doctor/surgeon is going to do or what is expected, but he asked me from the beginning. What are your questions? What do you want to know about what’s going to go on. He is very calm and thorough and I truly appreciate that from him.

    The friendliness of the staff.
