Beverly R. Had Spine Surgery with Dr. Hooman Melamed
Beyond a chance to express my infinite gratitude for Dr. Melamed and the entire Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital team, I would like to take the opportunity to send out a message to those in chronic pain. BE YOUR OWN ADVOCATE.
My troubles started after I was in a car accident several years back. I was backing out of my driveway and a car blew a stop sign at 60 miles an hour, hitting my driver-side door full force. Firefighters had to pry me out of the wreckage because the impact had crushed the gear shift and door to my body. Most doctors said there was nothing they could do; I had to get used to living with crippling pain for the rest of my life. During these dark times, I decided to consult with other doctors, and it was through this process that I met Dr. Hooman Melamed. After an eight-hour procedure, I awoke to only feel the normal pain associated with surgery, but my chronic pain already lessened. I would like to take the opportunity to send out a message to those in chronic pain. Always speak up for yourself and never give up hope, because a solution will come. I would strongly recommend Dr. Melamed. He may change your life like he changed mine.
