After years of back pain and leg pain I got started looking for some solutions, months of PT to strength my core, injections, and a recommendation for surgery. I went for a second opinion with Dr. Melamed. He recommended an injection in a different place where he though the problem was, I had the injection and was pain free for 4 months. Went back and said whats next. He did released a nerve in my lower spine with a one hour surgery. I was home the next day and had some pain but that was expected, after one week, I am pain free for the first time in 13 years. He knew exactly what to do, did it quickly, and with confidence. Highly recommend you get an opinion from him, you will like his confident, direct, manner. Thank you for giving me my life back. Show Less

I had suffered back problems for quite some time before surgery. I met Dr. Melamed for a consult and knew if I had surgery that he was the one to do it. Hes very meticulous and knowledgeable. He explained to me what the matter was and how he could correct it. When unable to return to work Dr. Melamed performed surgery on me. I was scared but his team and put me at ease. His staff is also vary prompt courteous and competent. Now 3 months later I am pain free and doing physical therapy. I return to work soon. I am forever thankful and reccomend Dr. MELAMED highly.

Words fall short when trying to express my praise for Dr. Melamed. I came to him after having several prior cervical spine surgeries that produced less than desirable results. Due to these past surgeries my case was rather complex, yet from our very first consultation it became apparent that Dr. Melamed had the expertise to not only understand my case, but that his approach was different and obviously at the cutting edge of current surgical techniques. Dr. Melamed clearly explained the intricacies of his proposed surgery and included me in all necessary medical decisions. I realized I was in the very best medical hands and for these reasons had the faith to allow him to operate on me.
It is obviously important to have the best possible doctor whenever going into a planned surgery, but it is crucial to have a superior doctor in the event that unforeseen events do occur. Dr. Melamed did an excellent job in surgery and the operation itself went smoothly, however, through no fault of his, I developed an unknowable post surgical complication unrelated to the actual orthopedic surgery. I had blood clots in my legs that traveled to my lungs. This was a life-threatening event and even though Dr. Melamed was not at the hospital when it occurred, he raced over and was there within a very short time. Dr. Melamed immediately took charge of the medical team that was assembled to help me, and without the slightest exaggeration, he saved my life! I cannot begin to express the gratitude I feel toward this incredible doctor. When I needed his medical expertise he was there, but this man went far and above all expectations when he visited me every day during my long hospital stay. His bedside manner is warm, assuring, and he had a great sense of humor that cheered me up during a most difficult time.
The medical office itself is pristine and loaded with modern high tech equipment. No doctor is able to provide the superior level of medicine that Dr. Melamed does without a terrific support staff. It must be mentioned that the doctor's Physician's Assistant, Michael Olschansky, as well as his entire office staff, is phenomenal. The helpful and warm manner in which these friendly and capable people treated me made a scary surgery so much easier. I truly appreciate that they, as well as the doctor himself, put themselves out to go above and beyond for patient care.
It has been three months since my surgery and I am most optimistic. I'm healing slowly, as this was a long-standing problem that developed and progressed over several years, however even at this point of my recovery I can feel steady healing and clearly observable progress. I have already been able to cut back on the pain medications I was on for quite some time and now see a future without them.
I simply can't recommend Dr. Melamed enough and strongly suggest anyone even remotely contemplating spinal surgery make an appointment to visit him.
He saved my life and I will forever be grateful to have been in his care. Show Less

Dr. Melamed saved my Husband's life and his expert, miracle surgeries enabled him to walk again! We were blessed to find him after a Torrance doctor performed a botched surgery & 3 unnecessary epidurals which made his condition worse leaving him unable to sit, stand, or walk, and a life-threatening staph infection which would have killed him!!! Thank you sooo much, Dr. Hooman Melamed!!! And thank you for your wonderful Staff, too! Show Less
