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.
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.
