The Doctors – Dr. Melamed Corrects Patient’s Flatback Pain
Beverly was left in excruciating and exhausting pain after a car accident and failed back surgery. The ineffective procedure contorted her spine to a 45-degree angle position, also known as a flatback deformity. Flatback syndrome is a condition in which the lower spine loses its normal curvature causing a front-to-back imbalance in the spine. In this video, Top US Spine Surgeon, Dr. Hooman Melamed, illustrates the complex procedure he has perfected to correct flatback syndrome.
