The Doctors – How Narcotics Can Be Avoided After Surgery
Statistics show that a majority of Americans will experience neck or back pain at some point in their life. While most people will recover from the pain, many will undergo some sort of treatment to address an underlying issue including surgery. In this video, Dr. Hooman Melamed explains to The Doctors TV show how he’s been able to help patients avoid opioid use while treating their neck or back pain, including after surgery.
Dr. Melamed believes opioids do not need to be subscribed to effectively treat neck or back pain, even for those patients on the mend from surgery. A Top US Spine Surgeon, Dr. Melamed has developed methods to help patients recover from surgery without opioids, recover and back to work faster while strengthening their body and ridding it pain-causing inflammation.
