“I was just hoping for relief and to get some of my leg strength back. I got so much more. The results of the injections exceeded my expectations.” – Larry Monaco
With special training in orthopedic spine deformity, Dr. George treats pediatric and adult deformities such as scoliosis and kyphosis. The Long Island neurosurgeon’s extensive experience and training allow him to skillfully treat the breadth of spinal problems from a simple disc to complex intradural tumors.
Dr. George’s Long Island neurosurgery group sees a high volume of patients. As a result, he and his fellow neurosurgeons have extensive experience treating both common and rare neurological diseases with the latest minimally invasive techniques.
Dr. George uses cervical laminoplasty, total discarthroplasty (disc replacement) and dynamic stabilization techniques as alternatives to spinal fusion. The Long Island neurosurgeon employs the latest technology in spinal interbody fusion via XLIF, DLIF and AXIA-LIF, in addition to other fusion techniques such as PLIF, TLIF and ALIF.
Dr. George is very passionate about minimally invasive techniques and uses tubular retraction systems to treat herniated discs, degenerative spinal disease and spinal tumors. Compared to open surgery, minimally invasive surgery results in very small incisions, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays.
Dr. George emphasizes that surgery isn’t the only treatment option for patients who consult with him. “We can offer effective alternatives to surgery,” he continues, “such as pain management, medication, injections and even acupuncture. There is a place for these alternatives in neurological patient care.” And he added, non-surgery options are a safer treatment option for the growing populations of the elderly and obese who often have other complicating conditions.
“When patients come to my office,” Dr. George says, “they will be seen in a timely fashion and treated with warmth and compassion. We respect the fact that they may be in pain and anxious about their diagnosis.”
