About Dr. Melvin Law

Dr. Melvin D. Law is a board certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon in Nashville, Tennessee with over 30 years of experience and expertise in treating back and spine conditions.

CORE PHILOSOPHY

Spine problems are very common and most spine problems do not require surgery. When surgery is necessary, accurate diagnosis and analysis of the problem is essential. I believe that the least invasive methods available to correct the problem is best for the patient. This can include minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery and traditional open surgery. Addressing other health problems such as osteoporosis is also essential to maximize the best possible surgical outcome.
