The Stavya Spine Hospital & Research Institute
Dr. BHARAT DAVE, M.B.B.S. , M.S. [Ortho], M.Ch. Ortho [Liverpool,UK]
Founder and Director
Fifteen years ago in Gujarat and in many part of India, operative spine care treatment was a stigma. Patients were skeptical about the necessity and efficacy of the necessary surgery, so much so that Orthopedics and Neurosurgeons avoided spine surgery as a full time career. It took a visionary like Dr. Bharat R Dave to change this thinking by pioneering spine surgery as a specialty. Fighting prejudice and lack of confidence at all levels of society and medical practice, he has with sheer hard work and perseverance today brought spine care to a stage where patients have started accepting its obvious merits. His flourishing practice at Stavya Spine Hospital & Research Institute has certainly set a benchmark not just for patients but also for other spine surgeons. The fact that there are now around 15 doctors in Gujarat who exclusively specialise in spine surgery says a lot about Dr. Dave’s achievements.
Dr. Dave completed his Post Graduation in Orthopaedics in 1989. Post that, in 1990, he went to England, Liverpool, for further training and a M.Ch. degree. He came back to India in 1996 and from 1997 to 2004 he worked as Consultant Spine Surgeon at White House, Panchavati. In 2004, he set up The Stavya Spine Hospital & Research Institute.He has over 18 years of experience as a Spine Surgeon, an immense thirst for knowledge and a keen desire to work for the community. Apart from his responsibilities at the institute, he teaches in colleges, has actively participated in more than 200 conferences and has published 9 articles in Indian & international index journals, as well as written chapters for books. He is the current Education (Ortho) Officer Member of AOSpine India.
