About Me

If you’re facing a painful, back-related orthopedic condition, Daniel Dixon, MD, provides comprehensive spine care at Avera Orthopedics in Aberdeen, SD. He is fellowship-trained in spine surgery and strives to find pain relief for lumbar-area musculoskeletal conditions.

Growing up, Dr. Dixon felt drawn to the medical field after seeing the faithful care from physicians and nurses toward his family members. As he was pursuing his medical degree, he decided to specialize in orthopedics after caring for patients in the emergency department and operating room.

Comprehensive Care for Orthopedic Spine Conditions

Some of the spine conditions that Dr. Dixon provides treatment for include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spine disorders
  • Sports injuries
  • Total joint replacement
  • Trauma

Supporting Patients Throughout Their Health Care

Dr. Dixon wants patients to feel comfortable and in control of their health care. He encourages them to be an active participant in their health by asking questions and seeking out appropriate answers.

“It’s important that, as a physician, I take the time to listen to their concerns and explain their condition and treatment in terms that aren’t complicated,” said Dr. Dixon.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Dixon enjoys spending time with family, coaching/attending his children's sports, hunting, fishing, tubing/water skiing, wakeboarding, playing slow pitch softball, golfing and snowmobiling.

Dr Dixon's waiting room is too small, especially in light of Covid. We chose to wait in a different waiting area, and the receptionist was kind enough to let the nurse know when she called for me.

Very nice visit to the clinic. All of the staff members were very helpful. Dr Dixon explained my condition in an easy to understand way. The treatment I received was explained thoroughly and he mentioned whether I needed to come back for further treatment. Would recommend the clinic and Dr Dixon to friends and family.
