Dr. Melamed’s Dedication to Outstanding Patient Care

Dr. Melamed is grateful for this recognition and remains dedicated to providing the best possible care for his patients. The Spine Pro, a practice he founded in 2005, takes a holistic approach to patient care. This integrative approach allows Dr. Melamed to treat his patients without narcotics. Instead, he uses a combination of cutting-edge technology, minimally invasive procedures, and a focus on wellness and prevention.

His commitment to performing ultra minimally invasive spine surgery has resulted in quicker recoveries and less pain for his patients. In April of 2019, Dr. Melamed was the first surgeon in the U.S to perform biportal endoscopic spine surgery (BESS). This innovative technique allows for a minimally invasive approach to spine surgery that was once not possible.

In addition to providing his patients with BESS, he also offers other minimally invasive procedures such as:

Furthermore, Dr. Melamed also provides redo and revision surgeries. These surgeries are performed to correct a previous spine surgery that was not successful. Through his experience and expertise, Dr. Melamed has helped many patients who have had unsuccessful spine surgeries find relief from their pain.

The Spine Pro Difference

The Spine Pro isn’t your average spine surgery practice. Dr. Melamed and his team believe each patient is unique and deserves a personalized treatment plan. “Too many patients get treated based on what is abnormal on imaging. I firmly believe in treating the patient — not the imaging,” says Dr. Melamed.

This individualized approach is just one of the many ways The Spine Pro provides patients with a level of care that is unmatched. Whether you need a minimally invasive spine procedure or revision surgery, Dr. Melamed and his team will work with you to develop a treatment plan geared towards your individual needs.

The Spine Pro may help you find relief from a wide range of spinal conditions and injuries, such as:

At The Spine Pro, patient care is the number one priority. As quoted by Dr. Melamed, “I always believe one must provide the absolute optimum patient care, and the rest will fall into place: Make patient care the number one priority, and everything else will be fine.” Because of this commitment to his patients, it is no surprise Dr. Melamed has been selected as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor for the eighth consecutive year. Congrats, Dr. Melamed!
