Shalby Hospitals is an Indian organisation which was established in Ahmedabad as a joint replacement centre in 1994 by Dr. Vikram Shah.[2] Shalby today runs a chain of 11 multi-specialty hospitals in Ahmedabad, Surat, Indore, Vapi, Jabalpur, Jaipur and Mohali.


The hospital, located in Ahmedabad, was established in 1994 as a small six-bed single specialty unit that offered total knee replacement (TKR) surgery.[3] By 2007, it had become a 200-bed multi-specialty hospital. It would later offer care in over 40 medical disciplines ranging from cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery,dental care, oncology and trauma to ENT.[3][4] The hospital was certified by National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH) in March 2010, six months after applying for accreditation.[5] In 2011 it acquired a 55 per cent stake in the Vrundavan Hospital in Goa, which had 120 beds across two units.[6] In 2012 Shalby acquired Krishna Hospital for an estimated Rs 75 crore, to become the biggest private corporate hospital in Ahmedabad.[7] By 2012 the company had 450 beds in Ahmedabad.[8]

In 2013, Shah claimed the hospital in Ahmedabad completed an average of 30 joint replacement surgeries a day, at which point they had 705 employees.[9] By the end of 2013, the organisation had treated 975 patients from abroad during that year.[10]

During the period 1994–2009, the joint replacement team performed more than 20,000 TKR procedures.[3] The length of surgical time in the hospital had been dramatically reduced from 1 hour, 20 mins per TKR to around 10–12 minutes[11] using the "ZERO Technique" invented by Dr. Vikram Shah.[12] Over the years, Shalby has performed over 1,00,000 Joint Replacement Surgeries.[13]

In 2011 Shalby received the Diplomat in National Board (DNB) certificate in Orthopaedics. At the time, it was the only hospital in Gujarat to have this.[14]
