Dr. George Miz is a fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic surgeon who has treated disorders of the spine since 1985. 

Dr. Miz treats a broad array of spinal conditions, including herniated discs, spine deformities, sciatica, trauma, and tumors, to name a few. He specializes in helping patients with degenerative spinal conditions and offers effective treatments using the most current techniques. In fact, Dr. Miz was one of the first surgeons in the area to enroll in clinical trials which allows him to perform artificial disc replacement, an innovative treatment for degenerative disc disease. 

Dr. Miz provides comprehensive, individualized care for each of his patients. His conservative approach means he offers the most effective treatments with the least risk. And as an expert in minimally-invasive surgery, Dr. Miz provides options that allow shorter recovery times for most patients so they can get back on their feet as soon as possible.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
