Welcome to Bhave Hospital

Rising Industrialisation & sedentary lifestyles, back pain has become integral suffering for all human beings, right from childhood to old age. The population of world can be divided into three classes – those who had back pains, those who are having back pains & those who will have back pains.

Dr. Arvind Bhave has travelled widely in 15 leading countries to get himself trained in wide varieties of spinal treatments & brought in all the technology to improve life of our patients. Here we are able to design indigenous equipment’s which are patented now. To name few like ’AB needle’ for vertebroplasty, which has simplified treatment of spine fractures mainly in old patients & brought down the cost of surgery significantly so that spine treatment has become affordable to many deserving patients. Vesselplasty is another latest in the world to treat osteoporotic spine fractures.

The endoscopic spine treatment at Bhave Hospital Pune, for the ‘sciatica & slip disc’ has revolutionized spine care & now we extend this technology for the common degenerative spine problems of lumbar canal stenosis which causes numbness & heaviness in legs making mobility of the patient difficult.

Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized the surgical treatment for the spine, with smaller & smaller incisions patients have small wounds which heal early making him back to work in smallest possible time , this avoids long term bedridden condition & hence the morbidity & mortality of these high risk surgeries.
