Craig C. Callewart, MD Brings 25+ Years Experience in Treating the Most Complex Spine Cases

Far too often, patients have gone through the process of seeing physicians for pain treatment only to have the same issues persist even after that treatment has been completed. Finding and treating the source of pain can be very complicated. There are 25 different points of pain in the low back and 35 in the neck. You can even have pain in your extremities that comes from neck and back injuries. This is what we call referred pain.

Dr. Callewart has honed his treatment planning and execution to not only meet the needs of those seeking initial treatment, but to correct improper care from previous treatment attempts. He himself has gone through spine surgeries, one of which was a failure, so he understands personally how frustrating failed treatments can be.

If you have suffered from inadequate relief from a previous procedure, Dr. Callewart excels at sourcing the issue and providing the correct treatment to help you find relief. Book an appointment to visit one of his offices in Dallas, Addison, Rockwall, or Forney TX to receive a qualified second opinion from an experienced physician.

Convenient, Personalized Care from a Compassionate Physician

As a patient, it is easy just to feel that you are another name. There’s medical paperwork to fill out, Insurance forms to complete, and a bunch of strangers speaking in medical terms that most people don’t understand. This practice is different. While there is paperwork to complete, his office is not owned by a corporation or a large hospital system so he can serve your needs without asking a manager. 

Dr. Callewart will discuss your symptoms with you, personally examine you, and review your x-rays, MRI/CT scans with you on a display screen in the exam room. Patients often ask to see the actual nerve that is being pinched that causes headaches, shoulder/arm pain or hip and thigh pain.

Unlike most doctors, he doesn’t carry a laptop in the room when seeing you. Rather, he takes the time to speak with you, eye to eye, while a scribe follows to make sure diligent notes are being taken in regards to your care. If you’re searching for the right physician to treat your back pain, neck pain, hip pain, shoulder pain or other spinal issues, Dr. Callewart is absolutely the one you should choose.

I have had 2 surgeries by Dr Callewart. The last one was 3 years ago. He gave me a good part of my life back. I will always have mobility and loss of motion issues but my quality of life is good. I cannot say enough good things about him and Joe Nagy. At some point (hopefully not soon)know i will have another and really hope i can go back to him.
