Lance Doeden, MD

Dr. Lance Doeden was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota and received his undergraduate degree at North Dakota State University. He went to medical school at the University of North Dakota and did his residency and fellowship at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Dr. Doeden was the first person in North Dakota to implant Omnia, the latest technology from Nevro spinal cord stimulation, as well as the first physician in the state to use Wavewriter alpha, the latest technology from Boston Scientific. Prior to moving to Rapid City in 2021, he was an interventional pain physician at Sanford Health in Fargo for four years.

Very friendly and helpful really knowledgeable
Dr. Doden was careful and considerate as I was in a lot of pain. I’m impressed with his professionalism and I would highly recommend he and his staff.
I have been absolutely impressed with Dr. Doeden’s professionalism, bedside manner and of course clinical knowledge/skills. I injured my back and was referred to Rapid City Medical Center by my primary care provider. I was hesitant at first, but I’m so glad I went in. I can’t say enough about how amazing everyone was, but Dr. Doeden really went above and beyond. Thank you for everything!
Love this place and the care
My wait time was minimal and as usual the staff makes me feel very comfortable. The procedure went well and hoping for good results. Thankful to have such a good Dr and personal. Thank you all.

Dr. Doeden and the staff are great. Put me at ease for my procedure. I am very impressed.
Everything went great seem to be walking much better. Thanks
I saw Dr. Tyler Ptacek, MD, for lower back pain. He's been one of the best medical professionals I've ever worked with. Professional, polite, knowledgeable; he explained both what was going on and why, gave me details about treatment plans and options, and took his time answering all my questions. 10/10, I absolutely recommend.
Dr Doeden cares!! I have been in pain for 15 years fighting every Dr just trying to have someone help me! Black hills orthopedic and spine center sent me to him, I am much better and now I can live with what pain I do have left it has been reduced by at least 60% thank you to a awesome staff and a Dr who LISTENS to his patients
I highly recommend Dr. Doeden! He was so amazing with me, I was in so much pain and referred to him by a Dr at Black Hills Orthopedic and Spine for SI joint pain, but after talking to Doeden he said it sounded more like nerve pain. He was so eager to help me with my pain!
Dr. Doeden is a very caring doctor. He wants to help you find a way to live comfortably. He takes time to answer questions. We are grateful to have found him.
Thank you Dr. Doeden, Nurses & Staff.
Always very polite. Answers any questions you might have. Very comfortable when you are there.
Dr. Doeden and his staff were very caring and patient with my Mom. Now we wait to see if the treatment works.
A year and a half ago, my concerns centered on my chronic lower back pain and if I could ever golf or walk my dog again. My chiropractor advised me to se Dr Doeden. We started with shots in my lower back, and burned off some nerve endings slightly above this. I am very happy to say I can golf and walk miles without chronic pain that affected every part of my life. I am a new person. Thank you.
The staff and Dr. Doeden were all so nice! Caring and personable. My procedure went smoothly and pretty painless. Was pleased with the care I was given.
Dr Doden and his staff are amazing very compassionate dr. Would highly recommend for pain management

I really enjoyed meeting Dr Doeden. He made me feel as comfortable as he could. He answered the questions I had and the procedure went as well as I expected.
I was treated with care and professionalism. I appreciated meeting Dr. Doeden prior to performing the procedure. All the staff were kind, efficient and very informative especially NP Erickson.
Great experience. Awesome staff.
I had an excellent experience. Everyone was very friendly and efficient. The procedure went smoothly and I felt like I was in competent hands.
I was very pleased with the injection I got in my back! Went from being in pain, struggling to sit up in bed… to absolutely ZERO pain!! Couldn’t be happier with my results! Dr. Doeden is extremely friendly, as is his staff! They make you very comfortable from the beginning and listen to your concerns and worries! So very happy I was referred here!
The staff is very helpful
