Daniel Samani, M.D. Orthopaedic Surgeon
Dr. Samani began practicing in Falls City in 2011 with 18 years previous experience. He specializes in Orthopaedic Surgery, Internal Medicine & Sports Medicine and is a board certified surgeon. He is a pioneer in minimally invasive reconstruction of the knee and one of the first surgeons in the United States to perform reverse shoulder arthroplasty. He received his undergraduate training at the University of Nebraska. He completed his medical training at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa. His orthopaedic surgery training was received at the Ohio State University in 1994 with additional training in shoulder reconstruction and sports medicine in 1995.  Dr. Samani is prepared to treat a wide range of injuries to the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons, in either a non-surgical or surgical manner, resorting to surgery when all other treatment methods have been exhausted or ruled out. He is highly regarded by his patients and has won a number of awards, including Patients’ Choice Award in 2008 and Compassionate Doctor Recognition in 2011.

Dr. Dan Samani is one of a handful of Orthopaedic surgeons nationwide that is able to perform minimally invasive total knee and total hip surgery. In traditional total knee replacement surgery the surgeon makes an 8-12 inch incision and cuts through or manipulates muscles and tendons to access the joint. Utilizing the MIS Qaud-Sparing total knee technique-the surgeon makes a 3 – 5 inch incision and uses special tools and surgical techniques to avoid cutting and manipulating key tissues such as the quadriceps. This procedure causes less tissue trauma than the standard approach, a smaller incision, less blood loss, less pain and a shorter hospital stay.
