Welcome to Operation Straight Spine (OSS)

OSS was conceived in 2002 by two spinal surgeons with a shared vision to establish a medical aid project for children and adults with spinal disorders. The aim was to create a recognized spinal correction service at an established charity hospital in India. This service provides comprehensive medical and state-of-the-art surgical care to children and adults from socially deprived areas who would not otherwise have access or could not afford such treatment.

OSS offers a holistic approach, both medical and developmental. It provides practical medical and surgical interventions, followed by comprehensive rehabilitation to maximize the recovery process. Follow-up services include outpatient clinics, on-going medical therapies and access to social services to maximize each patient's ability to become self-sufficient and independent.

Present and planned services include:

  • Diagnostic referral process / clinic appointment
  • Surgical procedures
  • Post-operative rehabilitation program
  • Follow-up monthly clinic
  • Vocational training and placement scheme
  • On-going support and assistance for patients to maximize their personal potential
