Spine Surgery returns to Skagit Regional Health

Eventually, even the strongest back may need repair - and Skagit Regional Health is pleased to have an expert surgical team to guide patients every step of the way from preparing for spine surgery through recovery.

Spine surgeon David Mourning, MD joined Skagit Regional Health on April 12. He treats a variety of back, neck and spine injuries and conditions, including:

  • Cervical myelopathy/spinal cord compression
  • Deformity (scoliosis/kyphosis)
  • Degenerative conditions of the spine
  • Disc herniation, lumbar and cervical
  • Revision surgery
  • Stenosis
  • Fractures

“We are excited to offer spine surgery services to our patients. This service will continue to enhance the breadth of care we are able to provide to our communities,” said Regional Vice President and Chief Physician Officer Mary Ann Hink, MD. “Dr. David Mourning has an excellent reputation and has been a longstanding provider in our community. We are excited to have him join the Skagit Regional Health team.”

Spine Surgery appointments are offered at Skagit Regional Clinics – Riverbend in Mount Vernon. Appointments are available by calling 360-814-6800.

Meet Dr. Mourning

David Mourning, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon. He attended University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, Virginia, and after completing his orthopedic surgery residency at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, he began a spine fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Mourning has practiced in the Skagit Valley area for nearly a decade, focusing his practice on cervical and lumbar disc herniations and cervical and lumbar stenosis. To treat these issues, he mostly performs minimally-invasive artificial disc replacements or fusions to treat conditions such as scoliosis that are a result of aging.

He is excited about the larger, multi-disciplinary team that exists at Skagit Regional Health and as he begins to see patients on April 12. He looks forward to growing the Spine Surgery program and establishing strong working relationships with complementary specialists to best serve patients.
