"Susruta Samhita is a treasure house of knowledge in Ayurveda especially the branch of Salyatantra i.e. the branch of surgery. The information available is vast and spread out, collecting which is an enormous task.

Though much information is available, not many standard texts are available in English is Salyatantra. Thus this book is a small endeavor to provide all the information available in Ayurvedic texts as well as brief information of the correlated surgical conditions and operative procedure available in the modern texts.

The availability of both Ayurvedic and modern information about each of the condition will make the understanding of the disease an easier process for the students."
