After 3 failed back surgeries, severe weakness and numbness developed in both legs and the nerve pain was unbearable. I sent Dr. Melikian my MRI and information and he personally called me the next day and my anterior lumbar interbody fusion was performed a week later. Surgery was successful and I have no more pain and my legs are getting stronger. I have never known such a caring and professional surgeon.

The first time I met with Dr. Melikian, I was impressed with his willingness to listen, answer questions and not rush through the appointment. I had been in pain for several months and thought it was due to my Fibromylgia. An MRI revealed severe spinal canal stenosis. I liked the idea of the less invasive procedure Dr. Melikian recommended. Immediately after surgery my pain was gone and has not returned. My children and I both recommend Dr. Melikian to anyone needing back surgery.

I received a minimally-invasive fusion by Dr. Melikian and his wonderful surgical team and I now have my life back! I had been experiencing so much pain and physical limitation that I had forgotten how good I used to feel. Dr. Melikian always took the time to listen and is an exquisitely skilled surgeon. I would highly recommend him and his team

After having some MRI’s done, every single doctor told me everything seems to be fine and there was nothing they could do but something was wrong as I was in constant chronic pain. After searching and searching I came across Dr. Melikian looked at my MRI; saw something other doctors weren’t seeing. Dr. Melikian took the time to listen to me and answer all my questions. He was very confident and without any hesitation told me he could definitely remove the hardware. Dr. Melikian removed the hardware successfully and since then I have been able to sleep. He is beyond excellent and His work ethics are top notch
In July of 2016 I was suddenly diagnosed with foot drop as a result of stenosis in my spine. I was referred to Dr. Melikian by his colleague, and scheduled for surgery almost immediately. I found him to be non-anxious, thorough, very patient and very skillful. My surgery, fusion of L4 and L5, was successful and without any complications. I all of my checkups subsequently, he has been encouraging, clear in his explanations and positive. I am grateful to have been referred to him.

Dr. Melikian is an incredible surgeon. I run a chronic pain foundation so I know too many doctors but he is the best. My doctor would literally not let me go to any doctor but him and now I know why. Just a small line on my back that will go in six weeks. If you need surgery or are in pain go see Dr. Melikian.

After two years and trying Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Physical therapy, Yoga and signing up for a Chiropractic Clinic (3 months), it was time to interview Orthopedic Surgeons. Wonderful reviews and referrals lead me to Dr. Melikian. I have felt informed, confident and cared for from my first appointment. Surgery was one week ago and I am walking and feel GREAT! Dr. Melikian kept me and my family informed even on the negative pain I may have after surgery! He’s the BEST!
