Dr. Caballero was born and raised in Tucson, Az, and attended University of Arizona. He attended Indiana University School of medicine for medical school and residency. Dr. Caballero enjoys orthopedics because there’s just as much arts and crafts as there is science. He pursued spine surgery because the spine is the backbone of human function, its the large conduit where the brain transmits the information to move. Dr. Caballero believes that it is a great thing to fix a spinal problem and see patients return to a high quality of life and life with full function.
The Hoag Orthopedic Institute Surgical Spine Fellowship is a 12-month post-residency program to train orthopedic surgeons in the specialty of spine surgery. Since 2016, Hoag Orthopedic Institute has graduated 4 fellows, all with impressive caseloads of 400+ patients. In addition to their medical responsibilities, each fellow has the following scholarly activities: Didactic work, case conference, and journal club with the spine surgeons each week. Each fellow also has a research requirement of 2-3 manuscripts throughout the year. This year a new partnership has developed with the Hoag Hospital Neurosurgery Department, and Dr. Caballaro will also be rotating through their clinic.
