Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. George "I am a dual trained spinal surgeon with both neurosurgical and orthopedic spinal training. This allows me to deliver unique, comprehensive spinal care. I believe that surgery is in general reserved for cases that have failed other non-operative treatments, however when it is needed I always try to do it using minimally invasive techniques. I believe in spending time with my patients and not rushing the visit."
