Research Focus

Dr Sarwahi specializes in surgical treatment of spine deformities at any age, but he mostly focuses on the care of children, adolescent and young adults. He is pioneering the minimally invasive approach for adolescent scoliosis patients utilizing smaller incisions, while achieving the same degree of correction. This approach minimizes blood loss and post-operative pain, which decreases hospital stay and hastens recovery. His technique has been presented at various national and international meetings.

Dr Sarwahi is one of the foremost scoliosis surgeons in the region. He specializes in complex scoliosis, congenital scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis and revision surgeries. He has built a dedicated scoliosis team that includes pediatric trained anesthesiologists, musculoskeletal radiologists and committed operating room personnel in the settings of a nationally ranked children’s hospital.
