AYURVEDA

The surgical part of Indian medicine is called Salya. Susruta was the leading writer on this subject. He learnt this science from Dhanvantari himself.

Susruta was a descendant of rishi Visvamitra and lived in the sixth century B.C. His work is called Susruta- Salya- Tantra. In this work he mentions a large number of instruments for performing operations.

Susruta practised all types of operations, even of the brain and eyes. He even fixed new noses for damaged ones! Susruta Samhita was translated even in Arabic.

Foreigners who came to India at the time of Alexander’s invasion learnt the art of Indian medicine and carried the knowledge to their countries.

The next famous teacher of Ayurveda is Vagbhata. He lived in the sixth century A.D. His most famous work is called Ashtanga Hridaya.
