After working in Family Medicine for a number of years he completed his residency in Neurosurgery at Deaconess Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri from 1991 through 1996 and he completed his Fellowship in Neurosurgical Trauma in 1995 at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

After years of performing surgery and practicing pain management, Dr. Mick noticed a large number of his patients also suffered from obesity and symptoms generally related to low testosterone. He felt the treatment of these issues could reduce the need for some of the more dangerous pain medications. After years of planning, Dr. Mick was proud to open Premier Weight and Wellness in March of 2015 at the Professional Heights Drive location in Lexington, Kentucky. It is here that Dr. Mick will continue to help his patients overcome adversity and make better lives for themselves.
