  • Very Happy With the Outcome

    When I first met Dr. Melamed I could tell by his demeanor that he had a great deal of experience and professionalism. He was very well educated on my spine condition and gave me all the possible options and potential outcomes for my spine... Now, a month after surgery I am feeling great. Physically I am consistently improving and very happy with the outcome. Mentally I have been given a peace of mind that I couldn't have dreamed of and I am on a great path to recovery.

  • I Can't Thank You Enough

    “I have lived in constant pain as long as i can remember due to a bad disc. The pain down my legs made walking more than 30 paces impossible. The operation that you performed ninety days ago has truly been a life changing event. I am totally pain free! My wife says my face is no longer pinched in pain. My coworkers say that i seem to have more patience. Unbelievable. I can’t thank you enough for the positive impact that you have had on my life.” -Perry
