Dr. Callewart’s greatest interest is in patients who had previous surgery and are still experiencing too much pain. Many of these cases are caused by untreated spinal curvature (scoliosis), or spinal misalignment (spondylolisthesis) or scar tissue. Dr. Callewart also treats various complicated spine cases including traumatic spine injuries, and cases of teenage scoliosis.
Dr. Callewart is a fellowship trained Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon and is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. A lifelong Dallasite, he graduated medical school from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas and his orthopedic surgery residency at St. Luke’s Hospital, Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Callewart completed his Orthopaedic Spine Fellowship at UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, California.
Practicing in Dallas since 1992, Dr. Callewart has performed over 3,000 surgeries and has overseen over 10,000 non-surgical treatments. He owns his own practice and has purposefully stayed independent to allow him to provide the highest level of care to patients. As a small office, he is able to deliver personal care that is becoming hard to find in large metro areas. Dr. Callewart also understands body and spirit are connected, and will support patients interested in a combined approach. He works closely with several area pain management doctors to coordinate care before and after surgery.
Dr. Callewart strives to keep a balance between state-of-the-art minimally invasive techniques, and the more open procedures that are sometimes needed to correctly treat a major spinal problem — the first time.
He is an internationally, nationally and regionally recognized practitioner in this field and has been voted one of the Best Doctors in Dallas by “D” Magazine for 5 years. Additionally, he advocates for Texas patients through the Legislature and US Congress.
