Having served the people of Bengaluru and Karnataka for more than a hundred years, it is natural that St. Martha's Hospital has evolved into a specialised Hospital where spinal ailments are treated by a specialised spine unit. With the advancement in medical technology and expertise it is now possible to diagnose spine-related problems early and treat them effectively. The complexity and challenging nature of the spinal problems and the accompanying risk of paralysis makes it imparative that a qualified spine specialist is involved in the decision making and treatment in order to reach a successfull outcome in this challenging problem.
