About Antony Kallur, M.D.
Dr. Kallur is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with New Mexico Orthopeadics. He is also fellow-ship trained in spine & pediatric orthopedics. Dr. Kallur, who has worked in pediatric orthopedics for over 12 years, states that working with children is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a healthcare provider.
He also enjoys working with older patients with severe spine issues, who are often hampered from doing things they love due to scoliosis or arthritis in their back. He appreciates how rewarding it is to see them return to their favorite activities—such as golf, travel or dancing—once they are healed.
Dr. Kallur utilizes the latest technology (eg. Robotics and Navigation) and techniques (fusion and vertebral body tethering—a new, FDA approved non-fusion technique for scoliosis— to ensure the safest and most positive outcomes for intricate spinal surgeries.
He was an associate professor at Baylor college of medicine and worked at Texas Children’s hospital for the last 2 years as senior faculty in pediatric orthopedics, with special interests in spine and spine deformity. He has also worked in New Mexico for 10 years and enjoys a stellar reputation among referring physicians and fellow pediatric orthopedic surgeons.
His specialities and interests include:
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis— assessment, management, bracing, observation or surgery
Neuromuscular, congenital, syndromic, and complex scoliosis in younger children— expertise in growing rods and casting
Back pain in children— both athletes and non-athletes

Fractures in children— treating all aspects of trauma in children (including spinal trauma)

Dr. Kallur loves the abundance of outdoor activities and great weather New Mexico provides. In his free time, he loves hiking the Sandia mountains and foothills. He also enjoys golfing and running (Albuquerque is perfect for both) and loves to watch the balloons!
