About George I. Jallo, MD

Dr. George Jallo graduated from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and completed his neurosurgical residency training at NYU-Bellevue Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Jallo received fellowship training in pediatric neurosurgery under Dr. Fred Epstein.

His clinical interests include tumors (brain, brainstem, and skull base), craniofacial diseases, and complex spine disorders in children and young adults.

Dr. Jallo's clinical research focuses on computer technology and neurosurgery. He is investigating the role of image-guided surgery for intracranial tumors and diseases. His research involves image-guided navigational systems and intraoperative MRI. Dr. Jallo's other clinical interests involve new treatment modalities for diffuse pontine gliomas in children. He is currently investigating the results of current medical therapies and protocols. This will allow him to pioneer new and innovative treatments for this particular tumor type. His laboratory research includes the angiogenesis and invasion potential of malignant gliomas, in attempt to inhibit the growth of these aggressive tumors.

He recently joined the faculty at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Jallo is the author of many scientific articles and chapters on brain and spinal cord tumors.

Pediatric Spinal Cord Tumors

Spinal cord tumors in children are rare, but they do happen. In fact, tumors of the nervous system are the most common type of solid tumors (those not originating in the blood or bone marrow) found in children. Spinal cord tumors can be life threatening if left untreated.

Causes of Spinal Tumors

A spinal tumor diagnosis raises a lot of questions. We've put together answers to the most common questions about spinal tumors, including questions about radiation.

Facts and Tips about Spinal Tumors

Spinal tumors (both benign and malignant) are rare. That's the first fact you should know about them. Here's a collection of other facts and tips about spinal tumors, including treatment pointers.

Treatment of Pediatric Spinal Cord Tumors

Surgery is performed to remove or reduce the size of the tumor and alleviate the pressure ont he spinal column caused by the tumor.

Articles Reviewed by George I. Jallo, MD

Alternative Treatments for Spinal Tumors

To help deal with pain caused by a spinal tumor, you may wish to try complementary or alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, aromatherapy, and tai chi.

Surgery for Spinal Tumors

There are many factors a surgeon will take into consideration before doing surgery for a spinal tumor. Review a list of circumstances that may warrant surgery.

Common Spinal Tumor Questions

A spinal tumor diagnosis raises a lot of questions. We've put together answers to frequently asked questions, including questions about radiation.

Chemotherapy for Spinal Tumors

Chemotherapy is the first thing many people think of when facing cancer. Side effects. Hair loss. Weakness. Learn when chemo is used to treat spinal tumors and how it can help you.

Drugs and Medications for Spinal Tumors

In treating spinal tumors, your doctor may have you take various drugs and medications. These are not to treat the tumor; they treat the accompanying pain and/or the side effects of other treatments.

Spinal Bracing: A Treatment Option for Spinal Tumors

A brace will not treat a spinal tumor; it's not able to make it shrink. However, your doctor may suggest a brace to help you deal with pain caused by the tumor.

Radiation Therapy for Spinal Tumors

Radiation for spinal tumors has one goal: to destroy the tumor. It can also be used before surgery to shrink the tumor. Article details how radiation is used, its effectiveness, and possible side effects (and how to deal with those).
