I had knee replacement with Dr Callander seven weeks ago. I can walk without pain and without a cane, and have been feeling great since week 4. The procedure does not involve a pin in your leg. He uses a custom knee replacement and it works great. The pain was manageable, the recovery smooth, and I am so grateful to be able to walk without pain for the first time in years. Highly recommend. Also, the Novato Hospital was excellent staff, cleanliness, covid protocol, food was great as well. An excellent experience!!!
My mom suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and was in desperate need of a total knee replacement. She was in so much pain and couldnt walk prior to her surgery. Her joint was totally obliterated from her RA. She was adamant about finding a doctor that would be willing to do it under a minimal invasive approach. I wasnt convinced that it was possible until we met Dr. Peter Callander. My mom had a stellar experience with him. From his bedside manner, kindness, and skillful surgical technique, Dr. Callander is truly the best there is. My mom was up and walking a few hours post surgery. Within one week she was 100% recovered, walking without a walker or cain, going up flights of stairs, not needing any pain meds. Im not sure how Dr. Callander does it but its true a minimal invasive approach for a total knee replacement. Now my moms friends and family from all over the country are making appointments to see him. He is the best. If you need a new knee wth minimal down time and pain, Dr.
I wanted to show my gratitude to Dr. Peter Callander for the incredible work that he did on my hip. I had seen many doctors during my threeyear journey and Dr. Callander was the first caregiver who immediately recognized the problem and said that I absolutely needed a new hip. Dr. Callander and his team managed to accommodate my surgery in the midst of the epidemic and that was not at all easy. Dr. Callander is a talented and honest surgeon. My hip is perfectly aligned and i will never have a limp. My recovery was very fast and I felt fully supported every step of the way. Thank you Dr. Callander. I feel like I got my life back. Also special thank you to Medical Assistant Irma and Surgery Scheduling Supervisor Christine!
I am 81 years old and recently had my hip replaced by Dr. Callander. It is now not quite three weeks later and I am walking without aid or pain. I had an excellent experience in the offices and the hospital. Dr. Callander and his staff are friendly and professional. They are always available to answer questions and the material they gave me to prepare for the surgery was most helpful. I used pain medication for only two days. I would highly recommend Dr. Callander for an anterior hip replacement.
I had a Birmingham hip resurfacing with Dr. Callander who is known to be an expert in this particular procedure. Results have been phenomenal. First of all, while Im not sure if this can be directly credited to his surgical skill, I had almost no pain post surgery beyond what a couple Tylenol could take care of. Took one pain pill (like of the opiate variety) on two different nights before bed, other than that, didnt need them. Walking completely without crutch or cane within about a month. Mountain biking fairly aggressively and hiking up and down steep hills and hitting tennis balls at 8 weeks. Really pretty amazing. Dr. Callander is also a super nice guy, has a sense of humor, and clearly cares about his patients. I have friends and family who have also had hip and/or knee surgeries with him and are all big fans as well. Great doctor, great procedure if you qualify.
I have recommended Dr. Callander to countless friends who he has treated successfully including hip surgery on myself. Fantastic doctor and surgeon!
I had a Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure nearly 3years ago.
I had a total hip replacement, anterior approach, in Dec 2019 by Dr Callander. From the first appointment to the last, he was professional and personable. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Callander, his staff, and office. Everyone I spoke with on his staff was helpful and responded in a timely manner to returning phone calls and making appointments. The procedure was explained thoroughly and I felt I had a very realistic understanding of what to expect. The procedure went well with no complications, and was actually far easier to recover from than I had thought it would be. The overnight hospital stay was as good as can be expected with friendly and attentive care at the Sutter Bernal Campus. I have total confidence in Dr Callander, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Should I need hip surgery in the future for the other hip, I will definitely schedule with Dr Callander. Six months post surgery and I recently hiked 60 miles in the Alps with absolutely no issues. I cannot thank Dr Callander enough for the great job he did, which allowed me to get back to enjoying the activities that I want to continue to do.
Had both knees replaced, separated by years, both custom fit by Dr. Callander using Smith and Nephew device. Now I have a perfect matched set, surgery went flawless, surgeon takes pride in his work even closes himself with minimal scar, 140 degree range of motion and leg straightened and achieved flat 0 degree which is unheard of results. Dr. Callendar is by far the best surgeon as I have seen the results of all my softball buddies, none compare to my terrific surgeon.
Dr. Callander is amazing. He has performed two hip surgeries and one knee surgery on me with great results. My recovery from the knee surgery seems so much faster than so many of my friends. Nurses and PT’s remark on the successful results. His office staff are great (especially now with the new xray technician!). His warm, professional, caring manner makes such a difference. . . he takes the time to really listen! He is the best!
Dr Callander has replaced my two knees and one hip. I have had no post operative problems and Im fully mobile and pain free. Hes the best!
Dr. Callander is a very skilled surgeon with a great bedside manner! I have had both of my hips replaced with a BHR by Dr. Callander, first one in 2013 and second in 2018.I have been an athlete all my life, primarily a runner, starting with Cross Country and Track in High School. In my senior year I started to be plagued by mysterious problems with my gait that were impacting my running. Through college I played Ultimate frisbee at a competitive level and continued for 5 years after. In the following years I branched out to hiking, backpacking, surfing, mountain biking, climbing, mountaineering, skateboarding, and yoga.I first started noticing something was wrong probably at 25 when I would have a weird clicking in my hip sometimes. By 28 I noticed that my range of motion was starting to be different on my right side during yoga and would sometimes notice pain after a backpacking trip. By 35 pain was a daily experience and I started restricting my activities no more running but still active in other ways. I finally decided to have the BHR done by Dr. Callander at age 37 knowing that recovery would be a journey. My goal for recovery was to be at 110% of my presurgery abilities at 1 year, I far surpassed that! I was back doing all of my activities within a year and pushing to levels where my hip previously held me back. After a few years of enjoying all the outdoor sports California has to offer pain free, my left hip quickly started deteriorating, and it was time to head to Dr. Callander for an upgrade on that side. I am now almost 2 months post surgery and my recovery is going great! Thanks Dr. Callander!
Dr. Callander is an excellent surgeon. I would highly recommend him for knee joint surgery. He’s very upbeat and makes you feel at ease that all will go well. Everyone involved in my surgery, recovery, physical therapy all praise how well all of Dr. Callander’s patients do. I waited over three years before deciding on knee replacement surgery for my arthritic, bone on bone knee, and I’m so happy I finally found the right surgeon to do the surgery.
This is my second surgery and I am just as pleased as the first time. It is great to have your surgeon wake you up and check on you in the hospital to get discharged! Very personal and great bed side manner. If I had a 3rd hip I would choose him to operate on it!
Dr Callander did a great job on my anterior hip replacement
I give Dr. Callander and his staff my highest recommendation. Less than one month ago, I was in great pain and had difficulty walking. Dr. Callander performed a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing procedure and today I walking painfree. I am so grateful for this medical miracle. Thank you, Dr. Callander...you are the best!
Im living a brand new lifestyle filled with energy, health and strength thanks to Dr. Callander. He conducted a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing surgery on both my right and left hip. Two years ago I came to Dr. Callenders office unable to barely move without feeling pain in my hip joints. Walking was a chore. A painful chore. I grew up playing a lot of sports, both organized and extreme recreational sports. Ive always been in good shape and lucky to not suffer any major injuries. However, seven years ago, my body spoke to me and began to throw me signs. I paid attention and tried everything: physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, PRP. None of these were fixing the problem. However, that journey was my own personal research project and it lead me to California Pacific Orthopeadics and Dr. Callander. When i met him, it was immediate yes. I knew I found the right person to fix the problem and I trusted his advice. Thanks to him and his amazing team, i can honestly say that he has given me my life back! I am doing physical activities I did in my 20s at a very competitive level. Walking is normal for the first time in a long time. I love hiking again, riding a bike is no longer impossible. Running is now peaceful and a good exercise and the rest is just pudding!! I highly recommend Dr. Callander if youre experiencing any discomfort or pain in your hip or knee joints. Dont wait. Do it now and live again!
I had done research on the top surgens in SF prior to making an appointment. Dr. Callander showed me on my first appointment why he is among the top. Knowledge, bedside manner and professionalism. I also knew I wanted an anterior approach total hip prior to going to see him, and this was one of the options he suggested. The surgery went very well and I spent less than 24 hrs in facility. Rehab is challenging with any total joint replacement but am doing well and able to ambulated without my crutches with no pain and limited limp due to muscle weakness. Thank you Dr. Callander and great staff!
My only problems have been with communication over prescription medicines
Extremely pleased with the outcome after the surgery. I had very little pain or discomfort after the surgery. Dr. Callander and his staff have been in touch with me daily, I have recommended Dr. Callander to my sister who will be needing the total hip replacement as well. Thank you all!
