Testimonial — Rich Can Play Tennis Without Back Pain

Rich has had a lifelong love of tennis and it's no secret that the sport can be very demanding on the body. In this video, Rich explains how many doctors urged him to quit playing tennis in order to prevent the low back pain he was experiencing. Top US Spine Surgeon Dr. Hooman Melamed, however, feels that an active lifestyle is crucial to a patient's overall health and didn't think it was necessary for Rich to give up a sport he was so passionate about. Through a quick and muscle-sparing minimally invasive surgery, physical therapy and small dietary changes, Dr. Melamed was able to get Rich back on the tennis court.
