Exceptional Orthopedic Care for Dallas Patients
Dr. Callewart believes that the best option for patients is one that involves the least amount of surgery. In fact, about two-thirds of his patients are treated without surgery by using medications, physical therapy, and other nonsurgical treatments.

Dr. Callewart believes that the most important aspect of providing quality care is establishing good relationships with his patients, involving them in their treatment plans and personally discussing the details of each procedure with every patient.

Callewart’s Holistic Approach to Orthopedic Care
