Dr. George P Zavitsanos has the following 3 specialties
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I have had several elective procedures done by Dr. Zavitsanos and have been more than 100% satisifed. He always made certain all my questions were answered (I write them down), he may seem distracted at times but his office nurses are his best resource and they make sure you have all the information you need. He is very honest about the procedure and potential outcome, (e.g brachioplasty -excessive arm fat removal and he was honest about the procedure being the #1 reason plastic surgeons get sued. My arms turned out just exactly like I was hoping). He has a very courteous staff and I will continue to recommend him to family, friends and anyone who asks.
Dr. Zavitsanos is talented, professional and personable. His staff is highly trained, professional, kind and attentive. Every staff person at the hospital spoke highly of his skill and demeanor and were respectful of his ability. The hospital staff treated me extremely well and never hesitated to provide care and attention. Dr. Zavitsanos was promptly notified if I had a concern or complaint and responded appropriately and immediately. I had major surgery and several follow up procedures and was highly satisfied in every case. I would go back to Dr. Zavitsanos without hesitation.
