The Swami Vivekanand Regional Spine Center was established in March 2005. It was and continues to be the only Hospital of its kind in Central India having comprehensive facility to treat all types of patients with spine problems. Over the years, more than 75,000 people have benefited from the services of the SVRSC.
In areas of super-specialty treatment, the state government hospitals are not geared up to treat such patients who are then referred out of the state or are left to fend for themselves. Thus a great need was felt to start a specialized hospital for treating patients with neurosurgical and spine problems. Not only do these patients require the conventional treatments including consultations, medications and surgery, but physiotherapy and rehabilitation are equally important as many of these patients have neurological deficits.
The Swami Vivekanand Regional Spine Center was started in March 2005 under a charitable society (Swami Vivekanand Kalyan Samiti), to address these specific problems. From 1st of April 2014, the charitable society has donated the Spine Center to Swami Vivekanand Institute of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Spine, a charitable not-for-profit company registered under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013 (earlier Section 25 of Companies Act, 1956). The Spine Centre now functions under the aegis of Swami Vivekanand Institute of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Spine (SVINNS).
