When non-operative treatment is unsuccessful, surgery may be recommended. Surgical consultation and treatment for all spinal disorders is available when needed from Pioneer's own Charles Mick, M.D. (past President of North American Spine Society). Alternatively, PSSP works closely with most of the areas spine surgeons and consultations outside of our practice can also be arranged. Commonly treated disorders include disc herniation and degeneration, spinal stenosis, spinal deformity and scoliosis, tumors, and vertebral compression fractures.
