He performed my back surgery and then misdiagnosed that I had a blood clot. He said it was nerve pain. I ended up staying in ICU for 3 days and I am now on oxygen due to the damage from the blood clot. He almost cost me my life.. Please stay away from this dr if you want to stay alive.

I have degenerative disc disease and have had to have 3 disc replaced in my neck and Dr Calhoun is my surgeon and I think he has done an amazing job I had one disc fixed in 2014 and the other two he just fixed a few weeks ago. He is an excellent surgeon and very friendly and he really has a great bedside manner I would definitely recommend him to anybody that's needs a neurosurgeon. He also has the most friendly staff and the hospital is the best too. I would recommend this hospital too.
