Nathan E. Sneddon, MD

Speciality: Pain Management


Physician Bio

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), and the Intracept Procedure. Dr. Sneddon recommends spinal cord stimulation for patients who have chronic neck, back or leg pain, despite having had previous back or neck surgery. Spinal cord stimulation can also highly effective for people who want to avoid spine surgery. He recommends kyphoplasty (vertebral augmentation) for patients who suffer from acute vertebral compression fracture related pain. Lastly, Dr. Sneddon is proud to offer the minimally invasive Intracept procedure to treat those who suffer from low back pain with degenerative disc disease. This is the newest minimally invasive procedure available for those who suffer from chronic low back pain who want to avoid surgery.

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.
