The Doctors – Fixing Failed Back Surgery
A single fall for a woman led to severe lower back pain and spinal fusion, which eventually ended in failed back surgery. Dr. Hooman Melamed was connected to Nancy, thanks to "The Doctors" TV show, to help evaluate her case with the aim of putting her on a path to relief. Modern surgical techniques are often seen as a miracle of medicine. Unfortunately, no medicine is 100% without risk and, although rare, surgery of any type can cause more pain than the original condition. Dr. Melamed excels in diagnosing and treating failed neck and back surgeries. As featured on The Doctors, Dr. Melamed was able to identify the cause of Nancy’s severe pain through his expertise, provide clarity and guidance on her options for relief.
