Dr. David A. Lundin, Medical Director, Washington Neuroscience Institute, Neurosurgery Spine Center, Renton
Bellevue born and raised, Dr. David A. Lundin specializes in complex and minimally invasive spinal surgery. "One of my best friends growing up died after a motor vehicle accident where he suffered a traumatic brain and spine injury," he said. Combined with an interest in the nervous system discovered in college, this catastrophic event led Lundin to the field of neurosurgery. Within his first year at the University of Washington School of Medicine, he focused on neurosurgery and ultimately graduated at the top of his class.
Lundin spent a year in London working at Atkinson Morley's Hospital, the neurosurgery hospital where the brain CT scanner was invented. "Working in a health system with universal access to care was inspiring," he said, "It gave us the freedom to treat patients without the barriers of insurance companies or the fear of high payments that stress patients and families in already stressful times of illness."
Lundin also traveled to Sri Lanka, where he worked with the chief of neurosurgery in their national hospital. "With a population twice that of New York City and only one head neurosurgeon, the amount of work to be done and the severity of the illnesses due to a lack of access made me feel extremely fortunate to work and live in the U.S.," he said.
He usually spends more than 12 hours at work, beginning at 6 a.m. and wrapping up around 7 p.m. with little time for lunch between surgery, meetings, patient rounds and administrative duties. But the hours spent are worth it when his patients follow up.

Dan's primary care physician referred him to a neurologist, who ordered a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and referred him to David A. Lundin, MD, neurosurgical medical director of the Spine Center at Washington Neuroscience Institute (WNI).
"Dan had intractable symptomatic cervical disc disease (SCDD) in his fourth cervical disc," Dr. Lundin explained. "The rest of his spine was disease-free and looked great, but the C-4/5 bulge was severe, pressing on the spinal cord and nerves, and pinching off the flow of spinal fluid. At 42 and in fine health, Dr. Lundin believed Dan to be a perfect candidate for artificial disc replacement: a new, non-fusion technique that would allow Dan to continue his active lifestyle for years to come.
"I was nervous at first," Dan said, "but I did my research. Conventional surgery would have been much more involved and would have limited my activities. What convinced me this was the right solution was that I felt comfortable with Dr. Lundin.
...
Dan had cervical disc replacement surgery with Dr. Lundin on November 12, 2008. Following the 90-minute operation, he was hospitalized overnight for observation and released the next day. While restricted from driving for the first week, he was able to telecommute from home the following day.
Just four weeks later, he's sporting a narrow scar on the front of his neck, sipping coffee at Starbucks and using a laptop computer to demonstrate the regained use of his right hand. He nods his head up and down vigorously, then a little more gently side to side. "It's still a little stiff with lateral movement," Dan says, "and I have a way to go with my right hand. I'm trying to use it as much as possible. "I had very little pain afterwards," he marvels.
