About Me

Shawna Schmidt, MD, brings years of experience in pain management to Avera Medical Group Pain Management Aberdeen. She also provides expert anesthesiology care.

As a board-certified specialist, Dr. Schmidt understands that pain, no matter what the cause, creates many problems, physically and mentally. That’s why she uses a full spectrum of treatments in pain management, so she can help you recover and return to a fuller, more active life.

Treatment of pain can take many forms, but Dr. Schmidt will apply the approach that best fits your condition. She often meets patients when their pain is at its worst. She takes the time to know them, help them and guide them as they improve.

Active Lifestyle

When Dr. Schmidt is not seeing patients, she likes to unwind by running, and she is often busy with her five children, exploring the outdoors around Aberdeen. She is also an avid reader.
