I just met Dr Melamed for the first time this week. I came in with a very current MRI and X-ray from my last surgeon. During my visit he said he wanted more information so I went downstairs for a CT Scan and then he sent me across the street to the hospital for a special X-ray for Scoliosis. I went home and he stayed, he stayed long enough to review everything well enough and called me the same evening around 7:00pm. First of all what doctor does that? When he called, he explained everything that is going on with my spine, why I have pain and similar symptoms I had before I had a fusion last September 2018. I have to have another surgery and I'm going to go with Dr Malamed. My reasons are quite simple, I feel he is honest, he has awesome bedside manner, took his time explaining everything to me, took the time to answer all of my questions, I naturally felt a sense of comfort while discussing everything with him and he has great staff! That's just my first visit BTW. Show Less

If you want the most skilled, educated, and passionate surgeon then Dr. Melamed is it. He is dedicated to doing the very best and goes above and beyond to get those results for his patients. I wouldn't want anyone else performing spine surgery on me ever. Dr. Melamed does not recommend surgery unless it is truly needed. I trust this man and believe him. He really understands the body, pain, and medication, and takes it seriously. He is not in the businesses to just cut or pass out meds. He believes in quality not quantity. He's not trying to see a zillion patients and take them all to the operating room. He strives to do the exact opposite. He responds quicker to my emails than my family! He also takes a mind-body more holistic approach and wants his patients to have success and he knows how to make it happen. It is very personal to him. He is meticulous and a perfectionist with his craft, I feel absolutely blessed to have him as my surgeon. He is a truly caring and wonderful human being. He lives and breathes to find ways to improve overall health and it's fascinating. Strong opiates were attacking my nervous system and he helped me understand how much they were harming me. I had a lumbar fusion oct 2018 and as of sept 2019, I am fused and was able to have my hardware removed. I did both surgeries without the use of strong opiates. I have my life back and owe it to him. I will never be able to thank Dr. Melamed enough for everything he has done for me. Show Less

Dr.Melamed is a doctor's doctor. He has performed surgery on two of my uncles and my dad who are all M.D.'s. Since then, they have been given back a higher quality of life, pain free.
Dr. Melamed is intelligent, trustworthy, caring, committed to his patients, an outstanding surgeon as well as a phenomenal human being.
He is held in such high regard by my family that when my boyfriend needed to have emergency surgery on two levels of his lower back, Dr. Melamed truly saved his life.
My boyfriend was unable to stand straight for almost five months and was hunched over from lower back pain. Medication as well as several epidurals from other doctors became ineffective. Thank goodness Dr. Melamed was available to take the case and the surgery was completely successful! My boyfriend was standing straight after surgery without pain and has continued towards a healthy journey of working out at the gym again.
Dr. Melamed's cutting edge expertise in microsurgery and his follow up care regarding special diet and exercise has changed all of their lives for the better. I have seen it first hand. It is an honor and a privilege for one to be a patient of Dr. Hooman Melamed. He is an absolute blessing to the field of medicine. Show Less

This is the doctor you want if you're going to get back surgery. I did a lot of research to find him, and it paid off. I had the surgery last February and it has changed my life. I could barely walk and now I have no restrictions caused by my back.
