Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.
To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
As of 5/10/2017, Dr. George has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

I was informed by Dr. George his specialty is knee replacements ONLY and that he was referring me to another orthopedic doctor. Funny he never mentioned this in any of the previous appointments with him in the last 3 years. Felt I was being dismissed and don't come back. Does not fit your model of "world class care" and left me with a bad impression of Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. George diagnosed my issue immediately and recommended a steroid shot and physical therapy. I was very relieved to find out that surgery was not needed.

Dr. George was interested in finding out the cause of the problem before treatment. That is kind of rare. Most want to treat 1st.

His care for my knee injections was excellent however the appointment only revolved around giving me the shots. it went so fast we never discussed my overall knee problems (i.e. arthritis pain) I still have pain and have recently inquired (via MyChart) whether anything more can be done.

Dr, George scheduled me for a joint injection, arthrogram which corrected my problem and the pain I was experiencing is now gone. Thank you Dr. George

Dr. George is very professional. He is also intuitive, insightful, thoughtful and kind. I believe, he is is very skilled in his specialty based on the success I have experienced from having had two full hip replacements performed by him in a 6 month time period.
