ABC 7 News – 14-Year Old Reese’s Scoliosis Surgery
Dr. Hooman Melamed helps 14-year old Reese Thielbar with debilitating, painful scoliosis. Reese tried everything from chiropractic treatment to traction tables and the 92 degree curvature in her spine only worsened. Thanks to Dr. Melamed, Reese now walks and stands up straight.
ABOUT THE SEGMENT: "This is a 92 degree curvature of the spine. Her rib cage was popped out. It would interfere with her ability to breathe. Her spine was getting increasingly worse... Less than 1 week after scoliosis surgery, Reese is walking around!"
