The Sushruta Samhita is one of the ancient classical texts of Ayurveda. The text deals specifically with the development of surgery. Sushruta is often referred to as the Father of Surgery, called shalya in Sanskrit.
It is recorded that Sushruta performed numerous plastic surgeries, rhinoplasty and other reconstructions, removal of cataracts and more – quite amazing and detailed instructions for thousands of years ago.
Sushruta mentioned different types of wounds and treatments for in detail. Treatments included how to clean wounds, what to use as surgical tools, natural anaesthetics and more.
The most often quoted definition of health in Ayurveda comes from the Sushruta Samhita, shown below.
“Samadosha
Samagnischa Samadhatu
Malakriyaah Prasanna
Atma Indriya Manaha
Swatha ity
Abhidheeyate”
This translates as “the balance of the dosha, balanced conversion of food into the dhatus, balanced digestive fire, and the metabolism of food and proper elimination of waste.” This is the definition of health.
