LAs early as the sixth century BC, Sushruta, recognized as the “father of surgery” in ancient India, introduced pioneering operations and healing techniques. He authored Sushruta-samhita, the first important treatise on surgery in the country providing a crucial source of information on matters of surgery, toxicology, pharmacology and pediatrics.
