Some comments on Dr. Hegde’s spine work 
  • He has pioneered the use of many modern instrumentation systems, for Example, the Cotrel – Dubousset, the Moss Miami, The Ray cages (PLIF), the BAK cages and the Harms Mesh Systems in India.
  • His present repertoire of work covers almost the entire gamut of spinal disorders and includes deformity, low back, tumor, trauma, Infection & cervical spine surgery.
  • In deformity surgery, he has successfully managed a wide range of deformities from mild to the very severe using back, front back, multiple staged interventions. He is quite at home in the use of anterior as well as posterior instrumentation systems.
  • In the low back, he routinely tackle a variety of problems ranging from disk prolapse, to spondylolisthesis, failed back and salvage situations. I do complicated revision surgeries for instability and sagittal malalignment using back-front-back techniques in the same sitting. He is familiar with PLIF (BAK – cages), TLIF (Harms technique) and global fusion techniques
  • He has tackled variety of tumors including benign (eg. Hemangioma) and malignant (primary, secondary). He is familiar with vertebrectomy techniques and reconstruction using cages, grafts, etc.
  • He has tackled trauma using a wide variety of approaches concepts and implant systems, from the front and back.
  • He is frequently invited nationally as well as internationally to conduct
    workshops on modern spinal techniques and perform live demonstration surgeries.

He is credited with introducing Arthroplastic reconstruction of the lumbar and cervical discs with artificial discs in India.  A first for an Indian spine surgeon:

He has designed in collaboration with Medtronic Sofamor Danek (MSD) a comprehensive spinal instrumentation system for anterior fixation in a variety of spinal problems including spinal deformities, tumors, infections and injuries. The system is awaiting FDA clearance and will be marketed internationally by MSD. It is called “The Pegasus”.
