Doctor Details

Dr. Bharat Dave

Nineteen 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 specialize in spine surgery says a lot about Dr. Dave’s achievements.
