From the moment I walked into Dr. Melamed's office, I felt sheer comfort and very welcomed. His assistant, Holly was the first person to take time and visit with me, and gave me an idea what I can expect. She was very patient, and not at all hurried. Then, a few minutes later, Dr. Melamed came in, and it was like a light that flowed into the room. I knew right away, he was the surgeon I was going to chose. After spending almost an hour with me, there was no doubt that I would entrust him in doing surgery on my back. I felt like I was in a medical class room, as he explained everything in detail to me. We sat in front of his computer, and viewed all of my x rays, MRI, etc. and pointed out what was not normal, but also what he would do to help my condition. I requested minimally invasive surgery, and that is exactly what he was able to do. I could tell he thoroughly studied all of the views, and had a plan. He was one of the only surgeons who said he could perform minimally invasive surgery, where everyone else said they preferred to not do that. They required that I have my entire back "redone". Needless to say, I am now 100% pain free, and only one month later, I can walk with vigor and pleasure. Haven't been able to do that for a year. It will take awhile before I can ride my horse and dance again, but it is worth the wait, knowing that I will be living my life pain free and with unbridled joy. Dr. Melamed is a stand out in his field, and would recommend him to anyone who is seeking to regain their life back again. He is also very warm and sincere, and will give you all of the time you need. I have to further say, HE "ROCKS."
