Sushruta, the Father of Surgery, wrote his Samhita (treatise) about 2500 years ago in Sanskrit at Varanasi and classified it into six sthanas (cantos) bearing 186 chapters.
As Sushruta Samhita deals with anatomy & surgery and deliberates on many contexts of contemporary interest such as plastic surgery, it continued to be on high demand of English readers. Inspired by such demands Prof. G. D. Singhal the then Professor & Head, Department of Paediatric surgery of Banaras Hindu University along with a team of senior Ayurvedic experts from the same university, took the task of translating Sushruta Samhita in English. After several years of team work the book was published in 10 volumes during seventies.
In the mean time the initial print of the book exhausted and several volumes became out of print warranting republication of this important work. Considering the high demand and good quality of this work produced by the team of experts inclusive of both Ayurveda and modern surgery, the publisher decided to take up the work of republication in an improved formate pooling in three parts to make it easy to handle. The work is now being published in new print and in new formate pooling the 10 volumes of first edition into only three parts as mentioned below:-
Part 1 : Sutra & Nidan-sthan (Fundamental, Plastic Surgery, Pharmaceutical & Diagnostic Consideration) Part 2 : Sharir, Chikitsa & Kalpa-sthan (Anatomical, Obstetric, Operative, Non-operative & Toxicological Considerations) Part 3 : Uttartantra (Ophthalmic, Otorhinolaryngological, Paediatric, Gynaecological, Medical and Psychiatric Considerations & Aphorisms)
The present edition of Sushruta Samhita is endowed with authentic translation of the text in good English with scientific temper, appropriate notes, chapter summary and identification of probable research areas in each chapter. The work is easy to read and grasp the contents in contemporary contexts. This work will be of renewed interest among the seekers of Sushrutarian wisdom and expertise.
