Nathan E. Sneddon, MD*

Specialties: Interventional Spine and Pain Management & Anesthesiology

We are pleased to introduce Dr. Nathan E. Sneddon, MD, double board certified and fellowship trained in anesthesiology and interventional pain medicine.

Dr. Sneddon is passionate about helping those who come under his care and successfully managing their pain. His years of surgical training supplement his specialized pain management training and provide him a unique perspective when treating patients and performing interventional procedures. This includes specifically and always addressing the source and proper diagnosis of pain and thereby treating the source of pain instead of just the symptom of pain. He views his patients in a holistic manner and therefore cares for them comprehensively using interventional techniques, medications, and therapy.

In addition, he specializes in using the most advanced minimally invasive techniques for spine related pain management, with a particular interest in spinal cord stimulation, kyphoplasty (vertebral augmentation), the Intracept and Minuteman procedures. Dr. Sneddon recommends spinal cord stimulation for patients who have chronic neck, back or leg pain, despite having had previous back or neck surgery. He is the only interventional pain physician in Idaho who offers the new Intracept procedure. This is a cutting-edge minimally-invasive procedure for patients who suffer from chronic low back pain from degenerative disc disease.  He recommends kyphoplasty (vertebral augmentation) for patients who suffer from acute vertebral compression fracture related pain. Lastly, Dr. Sneddon is excited and proud to be the first physician in Idaho to offer the revolutionary Minuteman procedure which is used to treat those suffering from back and leg pain resulting from lumbar spinal stenosis.

Dr. Sneddon earned his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science, with minors in psychology and zoology, from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He completed his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. His internship in general surgery was at The University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio, Texas, and his orthopedic surgery and anesthesiology residencies were at University of Nebraska Medical Center. He then completed his fellowship in interventional spine and pain management at the Comprehensive Pain Center of Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon.

Dr. Sneddon is married with five children who keep him extremely busy. In his limited spare time, he enjoys trail running, hiking, snow skiing, backpacking, and keeping up with Nebraska Cornhusker football.
