About this title


This synopsis of Ayurveda offers a new translation from the original Sanskrit of Susruta Samhita -- the 2500-year-old surgical treatise, originally written by Susruta, the father of surgery. Though the book focuses mainly on surgery, it provides a comprehensive survey of various aspects of medicine, such as anatomy, physiology, pediatrics, gynecology, pharmacology, and psychiatry. It also has useful sections on poisons, training the student, and care of the newborn. This translation condenses the original eighteen chapters into fourteen, using modern medical idiom. As the allopathic system of medicine is increasingly being criticised for its inability to relate to the lifestyle of an individual and its helplessness against side-effects of drugs, this book successfully highlights the ancient Indian holistic system of medicine. Medical historians, general practitioners, Sanskritists, and others will find this unique approach interesting and enlightening.
