That person alone is fit to nurse or to attend the bedside of sxmhita patient, who is cool-headed and pleasant in his demeanor, does not speak ill of any body, is strong and attentive to the requirements of the sick, and strictly and indefatigably follows the instructions of the physician. Rao in suggested that the original layer to the Sushruta Samhita was composed in 1st millennium BCE by “elder Sushruta” consisting of five books and chapters, which was redacted and expanded with Uttara-tantra as the last layer of text samhits 1st millennium CE, bringing the text size to six books and chapters.

Tipton in a historical perspectives review, states that uncertainty remains on dating the text, how many authors contributed to it and when. Rao in suggested that the author of the original “layer” was “elder Sushruta” Vrddha Sushruta. The text, states Rao, was redacted centuries later “by another Sushruta, then by Nagarjuna, and thereafter Uttara-tantra was added as a supplement.

The text has been called a Hindu samhiga by many scholars.

The Sushruta Samhita and Caraka Samhita have religious ideas throughout, states Steven Engler, who then concludes “Vedic elements are too central to be discounted as marginal”. The text may have Buddhist influences, since a redactor named Nagarjuna has raised many historical questions, whether he was the same person of Mahayana Buddhism fame.

For example, both Caraka and Sushruta recommend Dhupana fumigation in some cases, the use of cauterization with fire and alkali in a class of treatments, and the letting out of blood as the first step in treatment of wounds. Nowhere in the Buddhist Pali texts, states Zysk, are these types of medical procedures mentioned. In general, states Zysk, Buddhist medical texts are closer to Sushruta than to Caraka, [35] and in his study suggests that the Sushruta Samhita probably underwent a “Hinduization process” around the end of 1st millennium BCE and the early centuries of the common era after the Hindu orthodox identity had formed.

The printed editions are based on just a small subset of manuscripts that were available in the major publishing centres of Bombay, Calcutta and elsewhere when the editions were being prepared, sometimes as few as three or four manuscripts. The different parts or members of the body as mentioned before including the skin, cannot be correctly described by one who is not well versed in anatomy.


Hence, any one desirous of acquiring a thorough knowledge of anatomy should prepare a dead body and carefully, observe, by dissecting it, and examine its different parts. Loukas et al [8]. The Sushruta Samhita is among the most important ancient medical treatises.

The Sushruta Samhita was composed after Charaka Samhitaand except for some topics and their emphasis, both discuss many similar subjects garrbh as General Principles, Pathology, Diagnosis, Anatomy, Sensorial Prognosis, Therapeutics, Pharmaceutics and Toxicology. The Sushruta and Charaka texts differ in one major aspect, with Sushruta Samhita providing the foundation of surgery, while Charaka Samhita being primarily a foundation of medicine.

The Sushruta Samhitain its extant form, is divided into chapters and contains descriptions of 1, illnesses, medicinal plants, 64 preparations from mineral sources and 57 preparations based on samhiga sources.

Uttaratantra that was added by the author Dridhabala.

The content of these chapters is diverse, some topics are covered in multiple chapters in different books, and a summary according to the Bhishagratna’s translation is as follows: Sushruta, states Tipton, asserts that a physician should invest effort to prevent diseases as much as curative remedial procedures.

The Sushruta Samhita states, per Hoernle translation, samhit “the professors of Ayurveda speak of three hundred and sixty bones, but books on Salya-Shastra surgical science know of only three gatbh. The osteological system of Gxrbh, states Hoernle, follows the principle of homologywhere the body and organs are viewed as self-mirroring and corresponding across various axes of symmetry.

Students are to practice surgical techniques on gourds and dead animals. The Sushruta Samhita is best known for its approach and discussions of surgery. The ancient text, state Menon and Haberman, describes haemorrhoidectomy, amputations, plastic, rhinoplastic, ophthalmic, lithotomic and obstetrical procedures. The Sushruta mentions various methods including sliding graft, rotation graft and pedicle graft.

The Sushruta Samhita, along with the Sanskrit medicine-related classics Atharvaveda and Charak Garrbh, together describe more than medicinal zamhita. A number of Sushruta’s contributions have been discussed in modern literature. Some of these include Hritshoola heart paincirculation of vital body fluids such as blood rakta dhatu and lymph rasa dhatuMadhumehaobesity, and hypertension.

The text was translated to Arabic as Kitab Shah Shun al-Hindi’ in Arabic, also known as Kitab i-Susurudin Baghdad during the early 8th century at the instructions of a member of the Barmakid family of Baghdad. In India, a major commentary on the text, known as Nibandha-samgrahawas written by Dalhana in ca.
