Perhaps the most amazing clinical experience and success of Dr. Pekarsky is the operation, after which patients have returned to the military aviation, where the load on the spine is much higher than sports.

One of the most famous patients of Dr. Pekarsky is the two-time Olympic champion in figure skating Yevgeny Plushenko. Dr. Ilya Pekarsky restored athlete spine a few times, returning skaters to the sport. In March 2016 in Yevgeny's spine herniated disc was diagnosed between the 6th and 7th cervical vertebrae, which was pressing on a nerve, disordering the movement in his left hand. Immediately after the examination, the operation has been successfully performed by Dr. Pekarsky, after which within six weeks a special detachable collar was prescribed for the athlete, in which he had to sleep and move around in order to avoid relapse. Within three months of rehabilitation and swimming exercises, the skater was able to go on with simple figure skating elements and to start a normal training six months later.
