Daniel P.W. Smith, DO
Teton Valley Health Care is pleased to introduce Dr. Daniel P.W. Smith, fellowship-trained interventional pain management specialist.
Before deciding upon a treatment plan, Dr. Smith takes a comprehensive approach by doing everything possible to determine the source(s) of a patient’s pain. He specializes in using the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques for pain management, with a particular interest in spinal cord stimulation and regenerative medicine. This can include both stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, which promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
Dr. Smith earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Management, with a minor in Biology, from Brigham Young University-Idaho. He received his Doctor of Osteopathy from A.T. Still University, Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, and was chief resident for an anesthesiology residency at University of Missouri-Kansas City. He then completed a fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the University of California-Davis, one of the national centers of excellence for his field.
From a young age, Dr. Smith always knew that he wanted to be a doctor. He even shadowed an anesthesiologist in middle school, which gave him valuable insight into a career in medicine and pain management. Helping his patients find relief from their pain brings Dr. Smith a tremendous sense of joy and satisfaction.
When Dr. Smith is not practicing medicine, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children. He also loves alpine skiing, mountain biking, golf, and a good science fiction novel.
