Vitiligo/white patches Introduction

Dr. Vivekanand Bhat (MBBS, MS), a surgeon, started his surgical practice in 1997, by establishing NOBLE VITILIGO CLINIC, a speciality clinic which caters exclusively towards eradicating vitiligo, this was a new concept as there are no clinics which treat vitiligo exclusively. As 2-3 percent of the population is affected with vitiligo, and there is lack of good surgical treatment available, he felt that it was necessary to start a vitiligo clinic, where patients would feel comfortable to make use of the latest in medical and surgical treatment under one roof.Vitiligo is not completely curable. Differ from each patient.

Dr. Vivekanand Bhat received his training in Autologous Melanocyte Transplantation a ( SWEDISH PROCEDURE ) in 1997. As he was one of the first doctors to introduce this technique in India, he was fortunate enough to be consulted by thousands of patients who were not responding to other treatment Modalities and this has given him enormous experience in treating Vitiligo
