Testimonial – Elizabeth – Woman Suffers C5 Double Herniated Disc

Playing tennis is something Elizabeth enjoys to stay active, but she knew something wasn’t right when she suddenly couldn’t move her arm. Thinking it was a shoulder injury, Elizabeth sought medical help when she was introduced to Dr. Hooman Melamed. Evaluating her MRI, Dr. Melamed’s suspicions were confirmed. Elizabeth had suffered a severe neck injury that was preventing her from lifting, or at times even using, her arm. Dr. Melamed recommended emergency surgery, performing a successful operation for a double herniated disc of Elizabeth’s C5 vertebrae. Now Elizabeth is back to living pain-free and playing tennis again.
