Among the many firsts that India gave to the world is the art of surgery. It is very well known that it was sage physician Susruta, who pioneered surgery in ancient India. Shalya Tantra or its modern equivalent, surgery was then an important branch of Ayurveda. Thanks to the compilation ‘Susruta Samhita’, the modern world is today aware of the sophisticated surgical methods that were employed thousands of years back in India. The MS course in Shalya Tantra makes the student aware of those techniques as well as provides him or her with a deeper understanding of the field of modern surgery. Just like MBBS graduates a student of MS Shalya Tantra gets exposed to the principles and practices undertaken in surgery.
