Surgery Department

DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY

The department is well equipped with a departmental library & different informative charts for imparting education as per the curriculum of UG. Theory classes are regularly held in college and clinical classes are conducted at I.P.D. & .O.P.D.’s, where students get practical and clinical skills by witnessing demonstration of cases under the guidance of their teachers. 10 beds are ear marked in our hospital for the department of Surgery.

The aim of teaching Surgery in homoeopathic Medical colleges is to enable the students to handle various surgical cases with the help of Homeopathic medicines. They are made to understand the scope and limitation of surgery and homoeopathy as well. Students are provided to inculcate a sense of research aptitude with homoeopathic medicine. Facilities are provided to train on the management of emergencies and take active participation in calamities, life supportive systems and its handling. This is achieved by study of various surgical disease, individualization of the case and application of well selected Homeoppathic medicines to the patients. In addition to the class room teaching students and internees are posted in OP and IP for practical training. Radiology dept. is functioning under the department of surgery where facilities are available for taking x-ray with help of expert technical staff.

It is that branch of medicine which deals with the repair, removal or replacement of diseased tissue and the medical practitioner who undertakes this job is known as a Surgeon. It is into practice since the olden days, Hippo crates the great physician was also an excellent surgeon. Our country too has the honour of producing great surgeons like Shushruta, his surgical techniques a now being recognized in the medical world.

Surgery however, is not a separate science. It is but a part and parcel practice of medicine because surgery is needed only in those diseases which are not controlled and cured by medicines, surgical operations assume importance to save human lives in cases of acute emergencies.

HOMOEOPATHIC VIEW POINT

Surgery comes into play when physiological changes cannot be reversed back to normal by medications alone. For ex – a tumor develops and is not corrected by medicines then surgery is our option. Homoeopathy as such is not against surgery although it tries to minimize surgery in the treatment of disease. The cases are on record in which diseases considered to be primarily surgical in nature were successfully treated by Homoeopathic medicines. These diseases include calculus of the kidney, gall bladder, hernia, intestinal obstruction, appendicitis, piles, fissures and fistulae, tumorous growth both benign & malignant in nature, ulcers hemorrhages, visual defects sprains, fracture, injury etc.

The disease primarily starts with the disturbance in the vital force. This is functional in character with no apparent pathology so surgery is not applicable but if this disturbance is allowed to persist for some time and the body is not able to overcome it, it leads to pathological changes in the body which may or may not be brought back to normal healthy state by suitable medicines and here the role of Surgery assumes paramount importance. Homoeopathic surgery is that form of treatment where the supposed surgical cases can be averted managed completely or helped in preoperative and postoperative stages with homoeopathic medicines only
