Procedures – Benefits Of Microdecompression Spine Surgery

Having neck or back surgery is probably scary to most people. So it is understandable why patients do a lot of research into spine procedures, but it can get confusing to understand the differences from one procedure to another. In this video, Top US Spine Surgeon, Dr. Hooman Melamed, outlines two spine procedures that seem similar in nature but offer vastly different results and explains why his specialized minimally invasive microdecompression surgery is a better option for most patients. It's recommended that patients who are told they need decompression surgery get a second opinion. Dr. Hooman Melamed strives to leave as much of the spine intact as possible and only operating when necessary.
