Susruta, the Father of Surgery, wrote his Samhita (treatise) about 2500 years ago in Sanskrit at Varanasi, India, and classified it into six cantos. All its 186chapters are being brought out as Ancient Indian Surgery series in 10 volumes in a very authoritative, scientific, literal, research oriented, syntax interpretation using modern medical terminology along with original Sanskrit Text by a team of 20 dedicated Ayurvedic practitioners from the Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University.

This volume, 4th in a 10-volume series, deals with Sarira-sthana of susruta Samhita, the classical surgical treatise. Each verse/stanza has a number and a heading in English giving modern medical equivalents, all such headings in each chapter are summarized at the beginning of the chapter in running English. Each chapter concludes by a suggested list of research problems applicable today in the medical institutions.
