Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Callewart "Craig Callewart, MD is an Orthopeadic spinal specialist who uses therapy, medications, injections, braces and surgery to treat painful conditions of the neck (cervical spine), upper back (thoracic spine) and lower back (lumbar spine). His practice includes adolescents & adults, and has practiced in Dallas for 25 years. Patients come to this practice because it is distinctly different than the way most medical care is being given today. Our phones are answered 24/7 by a human being, our clinic has one physician, and staff personally know the patients.

Dr. Callewart treats "failed spinal surgery syndrome" which happens when a former surgery does not heal properly. "Pinched nerves" can be caused by a "slipped/bulging/herniated disc" or by calcium deposits causing bone spurs on the nerve. In medical terms, this process of the disc joint going "bad" is known as "degeneration of the disc."
