About Daniel Moyse

I am a fellowship-trained, double-board-certified, interventional pain medicine physician serving the Des Moines metropolitan area and Central Iowa with Pain Specialists of Iowa.

Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, IL, I was excited to relocate to the Des Moines area where my wife attended Drake University. I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I earned a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in molecular and cellular biology, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Spanish, and a minor in chemistry. As an undergraduate, I was also active in conducting research with honeybees in a university laboratory, coaching a high school basketball team, and volunteering at a local hospital.

Following my undergraduate studies, I was accepted to the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science for medical school. I earned my Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree in 2011, and was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) National Medical Honor Society. While in medical school, I worked at Hospira Pharmaceuticals in the medical affairs department, and helped assist with education for other medical professionals.

I completed a 1-year internship in internal medicine at the University of Illinois Hospital and then relocated to Durham, NC to complete my residency in anesthesiology at Duke University. During residency, I received well-rounded didactic and clinical experiences and worked with highly-regarded faculty members. I was active in clinical research throughout residency and instructed ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia nerve blocks at numerous regional and national conferences. I was elected a Resident Teaching Scholar in my final year of residency.

Due to the quality and complexity of training available, I chose to remain at Duke University for fellowship training in pain medicine. In addition to extensive x-ray and ultrasound-guided injections, I performed more than 70 advanced procedures that included implants of spinal cord stimulators, implants of cancer pain pumps, and kyphoplasties. During my time at Duke University, I was active in research, and have published several articles on topics including ketamine, fibromyalgia, occipital nerve stimulation, and intrathecal pumps.

At Pain Specialists of Iowa, I remain active in medical education and serve as a site preceptor for medical students. I am also involved in educating medical students, residents, and physician colleagues about pain medicine. I am excited to bring my skills and expertise to our growing practice. My goal in treating my patients is to improve their pain and function.
