Review of Dr. Kalyvas

- in LA, LA |

My husband has had 4 cervical surgeries in the past 15-18 years by various doctors. He was living in chronic pain. We had been to 4 or 5 neurosurgeons in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans area in the past 8 yrs.and they said they were unable to help him. We even sent everything (MRI's etc) to John Hopkins who said he was not a candidate for surgery. We went to Oschner and saw a Dr Sulaiman who referred us to Dr Kalyvas. Surgery was August 15th. Dr Kalyvas did a excellent job! Successful surgery!!

Review of Dr. Kalyvas

-Diamondhead, MS |

Dr Kalyvas explained all of the requirements, benefits and possible complications of spinal surgery. He explained the steps we were going to take prior to surgery and the reasons for each. Although I was ready to schedule surgery that day, everything he told me needed to be done first was reasonable and made sense.. He spent enough time with me to explain every suggestion and answered all my questions. Dr Kalyvas has a very pleasant and warm demeanor and made me feel very comfortable..

Dr. James Kalyvas just did my surgery, I am glad I found him and had the good sense to put my fate in his hands. If you need a neurosurgeon, talk to this man before you make a decision.
