Dr. Melamed is best of the best. I couldn't be happier with my outcome. I had a l4-5 par defect. Dr. Melamed performed a 1 level fusion. He went in from the front with posterior fixation. This allowed for better disc height and enabled him to maintain the spine lordosis.

The pain relief was quite apparent only a few days after the surgery. At the 15 day mark, I was able to walk a further distance than before surgery. All pain from nerve compression was eliminated, just some residual incision pain.
I am currently 6 weeks out, and I feel great. Still taking it easy to ensure proper fusion, but I should start physical therapy soon.

I consulted with 4 other doctors prior to Dr. Melamed, but he was clearly the best choice.

I highly recommend Dr. Melamed, and if you book a consultation with him him and his amazing staff, it will be apparent why his practice has such great reviews.

Good luck with your recovery Show Less

I had the privilege of shadowing Dr. Melamed for two years as a UCLA student. He is not only one of the most intelligent people I have ever met but he is also a caretaker like no other. I have told my peers about Dr. Melamed, but I wanted to testify to patients online to inform them about the type of care he gives.

Dr. Melamed was the epitome of a stellar physician that everyone desires to have. I witnessed his gentle, caring conversations with patients as well as his professional, outstanding way of conducting his surgeries. He was not only a great human being, but he was also one of the most skilled surgeons I witnessed in my life.

As a first-time observer at a hospital setting, I lacked much information on how to shadow and did not have any background knowledge regarding orthopedics. However, Dr. Melamed was kind, patient, and informative every time I shadowed to educate me about all of the surgeries and procedures he was conducting in a detailed manner. He was always receptive to my questions and he has spurred me to be open to the orthopedic specialty when I enter medical school.

One review can't summarize the outstanding care I witnessed while shadowing Dr. Melamed but I hope that my words can reinforce the fact that if you are in need of a physician, Dr. Melamed is the right healthcare professional you are looking for. Show Less

Dr. Melamed is an expert on the field of spinal surgery and it shows in the way he presents himself and the recommendations he provided us with. We went to see him for a second opinion and will be staying in his practice for my husband's care.

I have been going to Dr Melamed for a few years now. He performed my second lumbar spine fusion and corrected the fusion from the previous Dr. I have so much confidence in Dr Melamed, that I have referred two friends to him. What I like about Dr Melamed is that he is not one to rush into surgery. He will try everything possible before recommending surgery. I am now seeing him for a herniated disc in my neck. Surgery was never discussed but alternative treatments were recommended. Another thing I like about Dr Melamed is I have never had to wait more than 15 minutes after my appointment time to be seen. My previous Surgeon had wait times of up to 2 hours past the appointment time. Very frustrating. Show Less

I have seen Dr Hooman Melamed two times now. I am contemplating a surgical procedure with Dr Melamed on my neck. (My family was very happy with the successful outcome of my mother's lumbar surgery with Dr Melamed eleven years ago.) His entire operation, including each and every staff member I have dealt with, but mainly with Lauren, and sometimes Nina, have been exceedingly professional, competent and warm. They always go above and beyond normal "expected" standards of care in today's world. I cannot say enough good words about this medical practice. Thank You Dr Melamed and Staff for your Care and Kindness and for "Setting the Medical Bar So High". Show Less

Dr Melamed is just the kind of surgeon I trust, very concerned about every detail, from lab tests, preop, recovery and explained all of the range of expectations. He is dedicated and of the surgeons I met with and interviewed g,ave me the most confidence in his assurance. He followed up with every minute detail and made sure I saw a specialist necessary for a condition he surveyed while operating. He even gave me some special maximum absorption vitamins for continued health and support. I highly recommend him, and trust that everyone will feel the same way Show Less

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
