Dr. Melamed specializes in surgeries for the cervical spine in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas.
The cervical spine is one of the most critical parts of the entire human anatomy. This region of the neck contains seven delicate vertebrae that are largely responsible for the very intricate movements of the head, neck, and shoulders. The cervical spine also supports the skull, which means that injuries to this area of the spine can have severe negative impacts on our abilities to perform even the most basic functions of everyday life.

Advanced Technologies for Surgeries of the Cervical Spine in Los Angeles
Disorders and injuries of the cervical spine can result in an array of symptoms, many of which can be very difficult to diagnose without the most advanced medical technologies. Patients suffering from cervical spine disorders can experience muscle spasms, muscle weakness, limited range of motion, and sharp or throbbing pain in the neck, back, and even the lower legs.
Dr. Melamed and his team of experienced and compassionate medical care professionals combine state-of-the art technology with a variety of highly advanced treatment methods to speed recovery and facilitate healing. From high-tech MRI’s to cervical laminectomies, minimally invasive surgeries, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapies, and other forms of effective treatment, Dr. Melamed offers the highest level of patient care in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Treatments for Deformities of the Cervical Spine in Los Angeles
Cervical spine deformities can be caused by many different things, including disease, trauma, and complications from previous unrelated surgical procedures. They can even be the result of a minor form of birth defect. Patients can often live for several years or even decades before experiencing any type of physical discomfort as a result of these deformities.
If the diagnosis is left untreated for an indefinite period of time, the patient’s full range of motion can become progressively compromised, perhaps even eventually leading to permanent paralysis. Dr. Melamed and his team take great pride in providing the highest quality of medical care and treatment possible in a calm and relaxing environment.
