ShalyaTantra - The Ayurvedic Surgical Branch – A Literary Review

Dr. Bhagvat Dada Jadhav, Dr. Prashant Date

Abstract


Ancient Surgical science -ShalyaTantra embraces all processes aiming at the removal of factors responsible for producing pain or misery to the body or mind. Sushruta took surgery in medieval India to admirable heights and that era was later regarded ‘The Golden Age of Surgery’ in ancient India. The association of Plastic Surgeons of India offers their salutations to this great Ayurved surgeon by giving him a proud position in the association’s emblem. In this review an attempt has been made to highlight the ancient  surgical  concepts  of  SushrutaSamhita  (Ayurved  Medical  text)  which  are practicing today with little modification.
