Testimonial – Patient’s Back Straight Again After Surgery

In this video, a 74-year-old patient explains how he walked bent over for years, experiencing pain down the side of his leg and suffering from sciatica on the right side of his body. The pain was getting progressively worse, but that changed when his son-in-law and sister-in-law recommended him to Dr. Hooman Melamed.

Initially, Dr. Melamed and this patient agreed to treat his pain conservatively, but it got to the point where they realized nonsurgical management was no longer enough. The patient knew he did not want extensive surgery, so Dr. Melamed offered a minimally invasive procedure. Six weeks later, this patient is extremely happy with the result. Now, he’s standing up straight again, feels terrific, and is no longer experiencing any painful symptoms.
