Zachariah M. George, M.D., F.A.A.N.S.

About Dr. George

I am a board certified neurosurgeon. I did my neurosurgery training at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan where I became the chief resident. After my residency, I did an orthopedic complex and minimally invasive spinal fellowship at the Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital, also in Manhattan. I deal with all spinal issues, ranging from herniated discs to spinal intradural tumors and also deformity. I use the latest in spinal technology (intraoperative navigation/CT/robotics) in my practice. I do a range of procedures ranging from minimally invasive laser procedures to large deformity corrections. However, I have a philosophy of doing the least invasive procedure to get the maximal benefit. As such, I focus on minimally invasive procedures and motion-preserving surgery whenever possible.

Dr. George has been recognized by his peers as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor: New York Metro Area.
