May Provider of the Month: John Mansell, MD

May’s Provider of the month is John L. Mansell, MD.

Dr. Mansell joined the CCMH Medical Staff in 2011 as a Pain Management Specialist and Board Certified Anesthesiologist. He provides care in his private Pain Clinic at Wyoming Interventional Pain Management, at CCMH and Powder River Surgery Center.

He attended medical school at in his home state of Alabama, at the University of South Alabama and completed his residency at Ochsner Medical Foundation in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Dr. Mansell says he has been inspired throughout his life to be a physician. In the third grade he was inspired to be a doctor while reading books about a physician missionary, Tom Dooley.

Later, while studying engineering at MIT, he decided anesthesia would be a natural choice of specialty as he pursued his medical education. He expanded his specialty to Pain Management when a family member struggled with pain due to cancer.

One of the biggest changes Dr. Mansell has seen in his years of practice is that patients are better educated on clinical options due to the availability of the internet.

His philosophy for patient care is “…the human body is smarter than the doctor and we need to listen to it.”

Dr. Mansell has lived an exciting life around the world, serving our country while providing care to our soldiers as a flight surgeon both in the United States and overseas, and as Chief of Aviation Medicine for the Wisconsin Army National Guard. Not one to let the grass grow under his feet, he is involved in various civic organizations, enjoys gardening, watching the Red Sox, and traveling. His wife Dona has family scattered around Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and the Dakotas, so they are frequently on the road visiting family.

Thank you Dr. Mansell for your service to our community as a physician and for your involvement in our community!
