Dr. R. David Calvo

Medical Director

Dr. Calvo has followed an aggressive career-path from basic science, graduating with his B.S. and subsequently M.S. at the University of Texas at Austin and Houston’s M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute, ultimately gaining acceptance to the Medical School, Surgical and Orthopaedic residencies in the famed Texas Medical Center, at his third UT institution, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Following two post-graduate fellowships in advanced orthopaedic surgery, his basic biological background led him throughout thirty four years of orthopaedic surgery practice, back to his roots in cellular biology where over the last ten years of his orthopaedic practice he began understanding and implementing the value of nutrition, hormonal balance, stem cells, platelet rich plasma and growth factors and their application to repair and restoration of degenerative and injured human tissues. The foundation is based upon a sound philosophy of building and restoring you nutritionally, hormonally, physically and emotionally into the best functionally you can be. Form follows function. His expansion of study and understanding of the benefits of omni-potential, non-pharmaceutical elements from your own body, takes much the risk out of recovering, healing and improving one's condition. Whether you have an injury, a chronic condition or a desire to improve your form or function. Today, at the Veritas Beauty and Wellness Institute, he and his associate Devon Perry have amalgamated the two divergent fields of their passions to offer a vast and growing array of maintenance, regenerative and therapeutic, scientifically based processes to offer the best that science has to offer.  Their talented hands and minds offer a one of a kind experience to their valued clientele.
