Dr. Amit Sharma is one of the top spine specialist practicing spine surgery in Mumbai, India since 2011. He treats spinal problems related to cervical, thoracic and lumbo-sacral area (neck, upper back and lower back).

He was trained for Orthopaedic Surgery at the prestigious KEM Hospital, Mumbai, India. During his three years of training in USA, Dr. Sharma was trained at best hospital for spine surgery in USA (Hospital for Special Surgery , New York) for degenerative spine problems and spinal deformity (Scoliosis and Kyphosis) correction surgeries. Dr. Sharma also did one year of exclusive pediatric orthopaedic work at Children’s Hospital, New Orleans, USA where he was trained for pediatric spinal surgeries.

Dr. Sharma works at best hospitals for spine surgery in Mumbai, which are well equipped with latest spine surgery techniques. As a spine specialist, he aims to provide an accurate diagnosis and formulates best spine treatment plan for his patients. A non-surgical treatment is tried initially for all patients. Spine surgery is done when non-surgical treatment fails to provide adequate relief to the patient. He specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery, cervical spine surgery, spinal deformity correction (scoliosis, kyphosis), revision spine surgeries along with treatment for other common spinal disorders like slip disc, sciatica, spondylosis, spinal stenosis, spine fractures, spinal tuberculosis, spine infection, spondylolisthesis, and spine tumors etc.

Dr. Sharma is extensively involved in research in the field of orthopedic and spine surgery and has published many articles in international journals. He has presented his research work in various national and international meetings.
