If you are living with pain and discomfort and feel as if you have no way out - I can honestly say, Dr. Melamed is your answer.
After many years of suffering with back pain, neck pain and eventually numbness in my right arm, I started to experience weakness in my arm as well. I Immediately went to see Dr. Melamed. After discussing my situation, reviewing my X-Rays and MRI results, he was able to pin point what might be causing the weakness. He requested a CT Scan on the spot, and was able to diagnose me make me feel at ease with next steps. He recommended I have microdiscectomy and microdecompression surgery ASAP. The fact that I was able to get Xrays, my MRI and CT Scan at the same location made it that much easier and stress free. I was diagnosed the same day - and was having surgery 2 days later - again, at the same location! PLUS PLUS PLUS!!
After under 6 weeks, I am PAIN FREE, and have almost 100% of my strength back in my arm. After feeling so helpless and fearing the worst, I am now elated at my results and look forward to getting back to my active lifestyle, and doing things with my daughter and husband that I was not able to do prior to the surgery.
Dr. Melamed is our angel, and I am eternally grateful for all he and everyone at DISC Sports & Spine Center have done for me and my family.
