Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Callahan "After 30 years in medicine, 25 in orthopedics, I am convinced that an involved, motivated patient is the most likely patient to achieve the result they desire.  I see my role as an educator and seek to work collaboratively with the patient to decide the best course of treatment, which requires making active listening to the patient a priority. While I believe that surgical treatment has an important role, and I'm a surgeon by training, in most cases the patient is better off if their problem can be solved without surgery."

in Waupun WI |
This was my 3rd TKR ,all done by Dr C ( accident caused first one to fail). I'm 1.5 weeks out & all is going well, still a fair amount of pain but I knew what I was in for. Dr C & staff were very helpful starting with initial appointment. Surgery was explained in detail & what I could expect for recovery. The surgery process & bandaging has changed which helped greatly with pain & being able to take a shower after !!! I highly recommend Dr C, Great Doctor & Great man. BDCH GREAT!
