Governor Noem Successfully Treated for Back Injury at Mayo Clinic

PIERRE, S.D. (STL.News)  Governor  Kristi Noem announced that following several weeks of medical treatment in South Dakota for a back injury, the Governor underwent successful back surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Her treating surgeon, Dr. Mohamad Bydon, described the treatment:  “Governor Noem developed an acute condition impacting her lumbar spine.  She underwent successful surgery and is well on her way to a full recovery.  The Governor is in excellent health.”

Dr. Bydon is a neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic and the Charles B. and Ann L. Johnson Professor of Neurosurgery.

“Surgery was successful, and I am thankful that I am on the road to making a full recovery,” said Governor Noem.  “As part of that recovery, I have to abide by certain limitations on my activity in order to allow my back to heal properly.  In the short term, this will include amount of standing I can do and the amount of travel that I can partake in around our great state.  I am grateful for the doctors’ and nurses’ steady hands – and God’s grace – as I am now back home in Pierre and on the mend.”

“I will continue to carry out my duties as your governor.  I’ve always strived to be a hands-on governor, who works directly alongside all of you to make South Dakota the greatest and freest state in the nation,” Governor Noem continued. “We will continue working towards that goal together.  I ask for your continued prayers and hope to see you all soon.”
