About

Dr Kallur has realized over the years that children are fast healers and are ready to tough it out to get back to their favorite activity as soon as possible.  Hence they are extremely motivated and he tailors his treatment to help them get back soon. Spine fusion requires careful thought, planning and execution.  When done well the child heals quickly and Dr. Kallur's philosophy is to do the least necessary so that function and flexibility are preserved.

Clinical Interests:

Dr Kallur (Antony) is board certified pediatric orthopedic surgeon, extensively trained in spine deformity surgery. He comes to us from University of New Mexico Albuquerque after nearly 10 years of erstwhile service (2010 – 2020). During his time there he was promoted to Associate Professor and was selected Instructor of the year in 2014 by his residents.

He has had excellent training in the US with his first fellowship being at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York which is the highest ranked hospital for orthopedics in the country many years running. His second fellowship was at the esteemed Alfred I. DuPont Children’s hospital in Delaware where he had further training in complex spine deformities in children.

Dr. Kallur is versatile in all aspects of various spine problems in children and is well versed in minimally invasive surgery and navigation assisted spine surgery.  He is also trained in vertebral body tethering and endoscopic spine surgery.

He has special interest in back pain in children and its management, especially back pain that can be debilitating in active children due to fractures (spondylolysis), slippage of bones (spondylolisthesis) and disc prolapse.
