The Doctors – Scoliosis Patient Undergoes Life Changing Surgery

Adore was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis at a young age, progressively causing a severe curve in her back as her body grew. In this video, Adore sheds tears as she explains "I felt like everybody knew. I spent all this time trying to hide it from everybody — the world. It was just hard enough being a teenager."

Adore felt like there was nothing that could be done to help her situation as a doctor after doctor turned her away. That is until she met Dr. Hooman Melamed. The Top US Spine Surgeon recognized that, with a 115-degree curve in her spine, Adore's condition would only worsen without help and recommended a two-part surgery.

Today, Adore says she is doing very well and diligently follows up with physical therapy which will ensure her back has the strength to heal and repair.
