DR. ANASTASSOV | MFSS
DUAL-DEGREED & BOARD CERTIFIED
SCHEDULE: MONDAY – FRIDAY: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Dr. Anastassov has extreme training and expertise in treatment of congenital and acquired craniofacial malformations, such as cleft lip and/or palate syndromes affecting craniofacial trauma, reconstructive surgery and aesthetic surgery. Dr. Anastassov was privileged to train in some of the most respected educational programs in the United States and Europe. He is trained in oral/maxillofacial, plastic, craniofacial and base of the skull surgery.
Dr. Anastassov has lectured extensively on topics ranging from oral implantology to aesthetics, reconstructive and trauma surgery in the United States, Colombia, Mexico, Germany, France, Switzerland, Scotland, Italy, The Netherlands, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia, and so on. The International Cleft Lip and Palate Foundation rate the cleft lip and palate center organized by Dr. Anastassov at the Elmhurst Hospital Center as a Center of Excellence.
Dr. Anastassov is an active member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, European Association for Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, The International Cleft Lip and Palate Foundation, and the Hellenic Medical Society of New York. Dr. Anastassov serves on the editorial board and is a reviewer for the following peer reviewed professional journals: The Journal of Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Radiology (Triple O); The International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery; and Folia Medica.
“The contribution of George Anastassov at Elmhurst Hospital added significantly to the strength of the division. Technical innovations in orthognathic reconstruction, microvascular techniques, free flaps for reconstruction of massive craniofacial defects, and maxillofacial grafting were intensively pursued in collaboration with other departments.”
Today the name Linkow is synonymous with dental implants. Dr. Linkow is responsible for numerous innovations in implant dentistry. Among his major contributions are the blade implant, the self-tapping ventplant root form implant, the tripodal subperiosteal implant, immediate loading, and the internal hex design for root form implants. He held 36 different patents. Linkow was the only dentist ever to be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
This was sometime in 1998 when I was working full-time for Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and the VA. Eventually, I was looking to acquire a private practice in New York City and I found-out that Dr. Linkow was anticipating selling his at 5th Avenue and 50th Street.
Acquiring the practice and associating with the Father of Oral Implantology seemed to be the right choice. The idea was to expand the scope of services offered to the patients from oral implants to advanced reconstructive and aesthetic maxillofacial surgery. Both Dr. Linkow and I were very enthusiastic regarding these possibilities. This is how the “Linkow Institute for Advanced Implantology and Aesthetic and Reconstructive Maxillofacial Surgery” was born.
We built an entirely new facility equipped with state of the art instrumentarium and fully accredited operating room on the premises in 1999.
Dr. Linkow worked with us until 2002 when he retired from active clinical practice.
I learned a lot from Dr. Linkow in oral implantology but much more importantly, I learned how to strive for perfection, never compromise, always find a solution no matter what the circumstances are and remember that the ultimate “hero” is the patient, not the one treating him.
