George Jallo grew up in New Jersey. He received his medical degree from the University of Virginia and completed his residency in neurosurgery at NYU Medical Center and his fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York before coming to Johns Hopkins in July 2003.
An expert on the use of minimally invasive technologies such as endoscopes, Jallo focuses on the treatment of intradural spinal tumors, brainstem and other brain tumors in both children and adults. He also has extensive clinical experience in intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring and is recognized for his contributions to the treatment of epilepsy, and craniofacial defects. His research interests include novel models of brainstem and spinal cord tumors and local delivery of chemotherapy agents.
Married to Michelle, he spends off-duty hours hiking, bicycling and learning a new hobby: fly fishing.
