Profile

As the 2005 founder of The Spine Pro, Dr. Melamed’s mission has always been to deliver the highest level of patient care by having a unique holistic, homoeopathic, and integrative approach to his patients. Ninety percent of his patients have been treated successfully without surgery. It is his unique holistic approach and dedication, whether patients require surgery or not, that has separated him from his many peers, which is why he has been highly sought out by many national news and media organizations as the “go-to” expert. He has made numerous appearances on the Daily Mail, Fox & Friends, ABC, CBS, the L.A. Times, The Doctors, Dr. Oz, and other local news programming. He has been nominated as a Super Doctor by his peers for the 10th year in a row and has been awarded the Hall of Fame award. He has received the prestigious Castle Connolly Top Doctors® award eight years in a row. If surgery is necessary, Dr. Melamed always tries to see if the patients can benefit from the least invasive approach that does not require the use of any implants. He was the first one in the United States who pioneered the ultra-minimally invasive BIPORTAL ENDOSCOPIC SPINE SURGERY and has saved countless patients from having fusion surgery. He also specializes other minimally invasive microscopic spinal and scoliosis/kyphosis surgeries and is on the vanguard of cutting-edge treatments involving nonsurgical therapy with Castle Connolly Top Doctors® award eight years in a row. If surgery is necessary, Dr. Melamed always tries to see if the patients can benefit from the least invasive approach that does not require the use of any implants. He was the first one in the United States who pioneered the ultra-minimally invasive PRP and bone marrow, motion sparing artificial disc replacement, XLIF, ALIF, alternative treatment options for traditional fusion surgeries, and more. He has developed a unique patent pending approach to treatment without narcotics—most surgeries are performed outpatient with patients returning home the same day. He served as Director of Scoliosis at Cedars Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital 2013–2021. Since graduating in 2005, Dr. Melamed has continued expanding his skills and continuously evolving as a doctor and surgeon by traveling to South America, Asia, and various U.S. states, observing other well-known, respected spine surgeons, and participating in surgery. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and a member of the Scoliosis Research Society.
