Dr. Melamed is the best scoliosis surgeon out there. I had a painful 65 def scoliosis curve. I was always in pain and couldn't function anymore. I had seen 4 other spine surgeons who all wanted to 1st go through my belly and my side and then 2-3 days later go through my back. This was going to be a 3 part operation. I was very scared. I saw Dr Melamed after a coworker recommended him. He told me he can do the whole surgery from back w/ one incision! He went in detail explaining his techniques and how he does it. It all made sense. By 2 wks after surgery I was off all pain meds and now almost a yr out I couldn't have been happier. When it comes to a major surgery such as scoliosis Dr. M knows the best and is the best spine surgeon with skills to go w/ it

Excellent and perhaps the best spine surgeon

After getting multiple opinions and everyone suggesting multilevel fusion and screws and rods, we saw Dr. Melamed and were shocked to see that he only offered a small 2 level microsurgery operation. After he explained his rationale, it made sense and I decided to go w/ him. He performed the surgery as out patient and I was home the same day and back to work in few day and it's been over one year and I couldn't have been more happier. I am doing everything pre surgery and even more. I have seen Dr. Melamed perform other very big invasive surgeries and now understand that he tells you exactly what you need and the right operation weather it's a small or big but the right operation. If you need spine surgery, you must and have to see Dr. melamed. Thank you thank you again.

Dr. Melamed was recommended to me by a friend. I had experienced constant back pain for several years and was ready to find relief. I was fearful of back surgery but after consulting with Dr. Melamed I felt comfortable with the surgery he recommended. I would encourage anyone with chronic back to make an appointment and find relief.

Great success story

Based on my experience with Dr. Melamed, I feel very strongly that anyone in need of low back surgery needs to talk to Dr. Melamed first before undertaking any actions in order to make a decision about treatment. I have nothing but highest regards for Dr. Melamed, his exceptional compassion and people skills, not even mentioning his high level of medical expertise and professionalism.

kudo's for dr. melamed.

I was injured in 2011 which resulted in cervical and lumbar surgeries. The first surgeries were not effective and left me in a lot of pain. That is when I saw Dr. Melamed on the "doctors"' TV show and wanted to see if he can help me. Dr. Melamed diagnosed me with sway back syndrome that he was able to use his expertise in scoliosis to fix the problem with better hardware, better alignment and included an additional disc and rods. I am now back to work free of pain. Amazing!!! His credentials are unsurpassed. He is truly an expert in his field. He was so patient friendly and was always open and honest about the whole process. I recommend him to everyone.
