Who we are?
Welcome to Aveksha! We’re North Bangalore ‘s first and premier multispecialty facility that offers comprehensive care for orthopaedic, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, gynaecology and obstetrics, urology, critical, accident and trauma care among other specialities. Established in 2013, our team has created a standard of excellence in providing all-round affordable and accessible healthcare services with our combination of top-notch facilities, highly-skilled doctors and healthcare staff and our core ethics of care, dedication and integrity.
Fom diagnosis through treatment and rehabilitation, the team at Aveksha maintains a strong interactive relationship with patients and their families. This team-based approach assures that proper and informed care is given while maintaining optimum comfort for the patient. Patients will enjoy the warm, personal atmosphere of a specialty hospital from the moment they enter the facility and for the entire duration of their treatment.
Our founder and chairman, Dr. Udaya Ballal, a practicing Orthopaedic Surgeon himself, dreamt of setting up a trauma care centre of global standards in India – a decision he made after practicing for over 25 years in Dubai. Today, his vision is a tangible reality: Aveksha is one of the finest and rapidly growing hospitals in North Bangalore.
The philosophy of care, patient-centric practice and deep commitment to the vocation of healing provides the foundation of Aveksha – which means, ‘take care of’. For us, excellence is not a destination, but an ongoing journey to get better at what we do every day and in every way. Our journey is intentional, measurable and innovative; as we seek to deliver the very best care possible to the people we serve.
Albert Einstein once said, “Only a life lived in the service of others is worth living.” When reflecting upon the traditions and enterprise that our community at Aveksha built over the years, these tangible words came to my mind. It encompasses the core values and mission of our roles as medical practitioners at Aveksha.
As the founder and chairman of one of North-Bangalore’s most affordable and well-equipped hospitals, it has been my vision from the beginning to strive for the highest levels of quality in patient care, surgical outcomes and treatments that are sustainable and comprehensive.
It is a vision that has come to fruition over a decade. With well-equipped facilities, a highly skilled and experienced community of practitioners and extensive infrastructure, we stand at the forefront of sustainable, holistic and affordable healthcare. The informed and strategic combination of skill, technology and our patient-centric approach, equip us to manage all kinds of emergencies thereby making your hospital stay safer, shorter, and pleasant. It is with pride that I say that Aveksha has set up a new standard of patient engagement that is rooted in our tradition of service, excellence and care.
Aveksha’s backbone is our community – the medical practitioners, health workers, and the talented teams at different departments that keep the place running like a robust, pumping heart supplying vital nutrients and ensuring the functioning of all the other organs. I intentionally used the metaphor of the heart, instead of a more apt phrase, “the well-oiled machine,” because we function as a collective of human beings who form the heart of this hospital nourished by the values of care, compassion and commitment.
These values extend to both our patients and our staff. Realizing the impact of cutting edge medical facilities and knowledge in the health and well-being of our patients and the integrity of our field, we have early on espoused a system of providing an array of knowledge and career support and opportunities to our community of medical practitioners. Apart from inspiring our staff to pursue optimum levels of quality, we also encourage and provide learning and growth opportunities to our teams within the organization.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change,” said the eminent naturalist, Charles Darwin. In view of what has already been done and what the future holds, we are poised to be at the edge of change, upon the wings of change: focusing on new ways of improving the health of the population, enhancing the experience and outcomes of the patient, and managing the cost of care for the benefit of communities.
I am proud of the incredible community that we have become through years of perseverance and our future continues without bounds. We welcome you to this unique experience of care that is Aveksha.

Managing Director's Statement
I write this message to you, not only as the Managing Director of Aveksha, but as an active member of the community we serve and a mother of two children. All these roles have become my anchor and compass in building up the best practices at Aveksha, to work on the behalf of our medical community and to keep striving to make an impact in the life of the individuals and families we serve. It is only when the very foundations of health are robust that we can pull through anything together, even the ravages of a global pandemic.From its early days, I envision the community at Aveksha as a sentient, thinking and feeling life form: A life form that grew powerfully over the years because each of its cells could function collaboratively, steadfastly and enthusiastically. This outlook has equipped me to inspire our teams to be forward-thinking, transformative and fuel the spirit of innovation and collaborative working.
Our employees and co-workers with their unparalleled skill and dedication are one of the biggest strengths of Aveksha. Their and their family’s welfare and wellbeing translates to the wellbeing of the community we serve. For this, we ensure that each individual in our teams are motivated, offered opportunities for learning and growth and provided a safe space to address their concerns.
Our daily concerns with illness and healing calls us to reflect on what “health” fully means. It reminds me of our primary purpose which is to serve others and to see our patients and employees as human beings and not as ‘cases’ or ‘resources.’ We know that economic and social conditions, lack of access to care, education, limited availability of healthy food, poor living and employment conditions, biases, marginalization, etc. all contribute to sickness, disease and sometimes injury. Working in this industry for so long has made me reflect on the true meaning of holistic and sustainable health that encompasses the mental, the physical and the spiritual. It encourages me, to extend my vision of optimum health, to our patients as well as their families, our communities and our coworkers. My promise towards my calling motivates me to keep striving to provide the full spectrum of affordable healthcare needs, as well as continue to advance our facilities so that we may better serve our people.
At Aveksha, we strive to understand the larger causes and treat each person with the dignity and reverence that they deserve. This is our mission statement, this is why we exist – for you and all in our communities. I am excited to be part of this moment which will lead to a healthier future for all—inspired by our calling, driven by innovation, and sanctified by our humanity.

In 2020, medical communities across the country battled many uncertainties from the effects of covid, changing policies, concern over the future of healthcare, the impact of societal upheavals on the wellbeing of individuals, and the increased socioeconomic barriers that influence an individual’s health-seeking behaviors. I started this note with a contemplation on the key factors that distinguished Aveksha and made us a resilient and thriving organization. Even in the difficult times, we stood by our unwavering commitment to deliver the most comprehensive medical care to every individual whom we serve.
One of the crucial aspects that distinguish a thriving community is how well it answers the healthcare needs of its population. In this, we have made substantial pathways using our customized health approach to individuals and families and prioritizing quality, safety, and patient care. Aveksha is committed to being the clear provider of choice for health care needs as we are driven by a consistent sense of purpose in delivering state-of-the-art care with exceptional attention to quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness.
Health care is very important and so is the personal experience of each individual and their family. This is a responsibility that we take very seriously. Since 2013, Aveksha has served over 45,000 people and has expanded our infrastructure to include 125 beds
With our investment in groundbreaking technology, combined with our exceptional teams of professionals and progressive treatments, we are equipped to provide our patients with the best opportunity to regain their abilities and live their lives to the fullest.
I believe that as a health care system, our most precious asset is our highly engaged, experienced workforce. With 160 + medical staff, Aveksha has a comprehensive approach to team building and collaborative problem solving which has enabled us to further strengthen, engage and empower our health systems.
We are at a cusp; standing on the robust foundation built by our combined efforts and ready to launch into new heights. Our dedication extends not only to the patient but also to your families – we work with patient families to understand each individual’s personal history and this is threaded into the patient’s individualized treatment. This approach to care allows us to heal not only the body but the mind and spirit as well.
We are passionate about our mission and look forward to the future with hope and optimism. We wish you the best of health and appreciate the trust and confidence placed in us to bring you the finest of care and services.
