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

Fantastic doctor. I did a lot (seriously a lot) of research to find the best doctor for my spine. I also asked in the Facebook Scoliosis Group and he came highly recommended. He really listens, really takes his time going over everything with you, empathetic, extremely intelligent, amazing doctor. I also love that he’s into treating the body as natural and as safe as possible. He knows his stuff! His staff is fantastic and super intelligent as well. I’m scared to have surgery but I know I need it and I know I’ll be in the best hands. Show Less

I went to Dr. Melamed with a herniation at L5-S1. I was in pain for an entire year and had been getting cortisone injections from another physician that helped somewhat but did not really fix the issue. I was able to get in with Dr. Melamed quickly, I was able to get my various tests (MRI, XRays) done in the same building, so everything was super efficient, which was great considering sitting in a car was so painful and driving from place to place would have been a nightmare! Dr. M was sensible, straight-forward and confident he could help. He and his staff provided detailed instructions on how to prep for my discectomy and I was able to be scheduled within 2 weeks time. Going into surgery I was super nervous, but the surgical suite staff were amazing! They were very attentive and answered all questions. Post surgery I had a cold compression unit prescribed to me - Dr. M's office contacted the vendor and arranged the vendor to meet me the day or surgery at the surgical suite to deliver the machine. Everything was easy-peasy! Office staff was wonderful, Dr. M is fantastic and I can say that, while the healing took a few weeks and I was tentative about how much better I would feel, I am 8 weeks out from surgery and feel incredible! I only get a little sore if I overdo it with activity (like doing too many chores or errands or sitting/standing too long). I just started Physical Therapy to strengthen my core muscles and can say my pain used to be an 8-9 out of 10 everyday and now it might be a 1 on my worst day when I have really done too much... and Extra-Strength Tylenol erases that small bit of pain. If you have been thinking of getting a herniation fixed, let me put you at ease, as I was so nervous about spine surgery myself. You will wish you had done the surgery with Dr. M so much sooner!!!

No one better so if you can get to California go see this wonderfully, beyond competent and caring doctor. No one in NY would help my 87 year old father except Dr. Melamed. We are beyond grateful. Thank you.

Dr. Melamed is a gifted surgeon.
Unlike many surgeons, Dr. Melamed has a great bedside manner and takes the time to discuss and address all aspects of the patient’s medical condition. He exudes confidence, but is deeply concerned that we also have confidence in him.
Dr. Melamed performed a complicated multi-level thoracic fusion on my daughter, successfully repairing and stabilizing the work done by a previous spine surgeon.
My wife’s two-level lumbar microdiscectomy was recently completed by Dr. Melamed, and she is absolutely thrilled with the outcome.
Lastly, it has been six weeks since my two level artificial disc replacement by Dr. Melamed. His approach to surgery emphasizes the minimal use of narcotics. My pain level was low throughout post surgery, and I used Tramadol only briefly. I had no need for anything stronger! The pain in my neck and shoulders has disappeared, and my range of motion is now normal. I am recommending Dr. Melamed to my friends, and particularly to my firefighter family. Show Less

I had a Cervical Fusion in 2011 that left me with many more problems than I could have ever imagined. After over a dozen surgeons, 2-3 MRIs a year and hundreds of wasted hours of appointments, I finally had the referral of a lifetime. Dr. Hooman Melamed is the most skilled and detailed surgeon I have ever had. He examined my case for hours and was able to resolve my previous fusion issue, as well as implant an artificial disc in the level above that became a problem as a result of the fusion. He is a knowledgeable and confident surgeon and yet, so humble and emphatic. His office is professional and the Disc surgery ctr. has the most amazing and kind staff. I'm forever grateful and will never go to anyone else in this field! Show Less
