I am so grateful to have been referred to Dr. Melamed.
Dr. Melamed made me feel safe and confident in the decision to have surgery. He carefully explained all options and recommendations, and took the time to answer my questions. He cares about the total well being of his patients, and he is an excellent surgeon! He kept me informed directly by phone or e-mail, checking in with me to see how I was doing, even to wish me a Happy Holiday! His staff is also very efficient, and caring! Thank you so much!

Dr Melamed is the best!!! At the age of 21 I got into a bad Tae kwon do accident causing me to be in extreme pain 24/7. I had a fusion done in my neck a year later to help with the pain. Unfortunately the pain never went away and started to get worse and started to cause nerve damage. At the age of 22 I had to have a 2nd surgery where I had 3 levels fused and had to get 8 screws put in my neck and 2 cadaver bones. A year later the pain continued to increase and my arms were constantly tingling due to my spinal cord being pinched. I had moved to California and needed to find a new surgeon and after doing TONS of research I’m so lucky to have found Dr.Melamed. Instead of just giving me another fusion at the age of 24 he did research and did a surgery on me that has never been done before. The surgery has completely changed my life and I have not had any pain since. I had very little movement in my neck prior to this surgery and now I have full range of motion in my neck. I am so blessed to be a patient of his and would highly recommend him to anyone! His team was there for me anytime I had a question and were so easy to work with! Show Less

Great surgeon, great results, I am finally pain free!! I had chronic lower back pain for years and exhausted every avenue of treatment including physical therapy, and pain shots directly into my spine. Dr Melamed fused 4 vertebrae and I am now active, upright, and going on long bicycle rides. Not a cookie cutter surgeon, he takes his time in the operating room. Show Less

Dr. Hooman Melamed provided me with a strong confidence in his expertise and skills from the moment he walked in the door. He was able to give me a hope and understanding of my condition and what was possible far beyond other surgeons and specialists I had been talking to at the time. Months after surgery I am recovering well, returning to the activities I love and most importantly able to hold my 8 month old daughter. If you have an issue with your lower back like i did or any other part of your spine, I highly recommend consulting with Dr. Melamed. Show Less

I had Dr Melamed 5 yrs ago volunteer to assist in my surgery when I couldn’t afford or have my Ins covered thru him. What surgeon “volunteers to assist”:) that’s why I came back as they couldn’t finish the fullC3-C7 at one time . And the last few years the pain got much worse because I hadn’t had the finishing c5-C7 . This time I went right to Dr Melamed because- simply - I trusted him 100% not only with my life ,but as a kind and genuinely caring human being! This is your spine for goodness sake - you need and want the best person - That is Dr Melamed! He was able to remove the fused plate at c3-5 and put in 2 artificial disc at C6-C7. I woke up pain free for first time in the last 8yrs - the pain in my neck up to my ear all thru my shoulder was GONE!! Finally relief !! And now I can turn and look over both shoulders:) He is a God send and you will not regret one moment of the most important decision of your life! Thank you -Thank you -Thank you Dr Melamed!!

If you have any spinal conditions, irrespective if this is your 1st spinal surgery, or not, don't walk to the phone, RUN. This man is amazing.
At 71, I've had 2 previous spinal surgeries in the state I live, but I still had continuous, unbearable pain, in both legs and my existing surgeon thought, and told me, I was imagining it. After researching across the country for the best of the best I found TheSpinePro.com website, a zoom meeting followed, and after sending Dr Malamed a copy of the MRI's he told me there were two areas of my spine that needed attention without delay mid back and lumbar area...
I flew to California and 1 day after the surgery I was up and walking without pain. Now 10 days after the surgery, I feel he has given me the gift of maybe 25 more years of good life, without pain, it's almost a miracle... Stop looking you have found the solution to your back pain.

I was suffering from a severe herniated disc for years, in the past two years it was a daily struggle with constant pain, eventually I decided to go ahead and have surgery done although I was super afraid of it, so I started looking for the best doctors and after about a week I decided to talk to Dr Melamed and I sent him all my paperwork including my recent MRI and we had a video chat conversation (I live in hawaii) and he suggested to go with a minimal invasive discectomy, 3 weeks later I had it done and I have to say that everything about Dr Melamed clinic was top notch and I was very impressed, immediately after surgery I felt NO pain whatsoever and was shocked that after years of pain it was all gone in a sec! I'm now 9 days after surgery recovering and feeling amazing! I'm walking and moving with no pain but of course if ill push it I'll feel some degree of pain. To summarize I'm super happy that I've done the surgery and even more happy I chose dr Melamed! Show Less
