The students of surgery have to gather information from different textbooks of surgery and homoeopathic therapeutics. That means they have to refer to several literatures to collect the relevant information. Thus, the main aim of this book is to bring all the relevant and pertinent information in a single volume. This book fulfils the demands of the students and serves as a handy reference guide to the practitioners. Considering the requirements of homeopathy in surgical conditions, the topics have been selected and described in proportional details. The topics in this book provide material in a scientific and systematic way as is expected in a book of this kind.
This book compiles more than 30 major surgical conditions ranging from abscess to wounds, hernia to renal stones etc. with their proper homoeopathic management.

There are various methods adopted to study the
Homoeopathic subjects by different personalities. Here I am
deliberately using the word ‘Homoeopathic Subjects’ since
Homoeopathy’ itself has a great depth. As we study the subjects
each time we have a different angle in front of us, we think over
these facts and use our best skill to select the similimum for the
Dr. Sammuel Hahnemann and his co-workers have made
the foundation of Homoeopathy logically, scientifically and
theoretically firm, where every word has its own meaning and
its own significance. To remember these things, these
observations, especially the symptoms of various drugs in
Materia Medica, is beyond the capacity of human brain.
To put it in rather simplified way I tried to write this book
on Surgery therapeutics. I have covered the most general
surgical conditions we come across in our day to day practice.
While selecting the similimum for a given case we consider from
generals to particulars or from particulars to generals as
described by Dr. Hahnemann. Thus the general symptoms of the
particular condition have been described followed by the general
symptoms of that drug. The concomitant symptoms are also
mentioned with peculiar modalities of the drug. So we shall have
locations, sensations concomitant symptoms along with the
modalities. In short, now, we have a complete information, that
is nothing but the "Totality of symptoms". And from totality of
symptoms we can best select the similimum for the given case.
There is no specificity or the specific drug for a particular
condition in Homoeopathic method of treatment as we believe
in individualisation. Still, for my students this book shall be the
ready-made material, which will make them to easily
understand the subject ‘Surgery therapeutics’ and they will
have the idea of how to study the various surgical conditions and
prepare and represent them in examinations.
I also hope that this book shall be equally useful to busy
Homoeopathic practitioners to quickly select the drug for their
Where the action of medicine ends, surgery begins. In fact
surgery has a great role in treating the sick persons. Still, we
the Homoeopathic physicians try our level best to avoid surgical
procedures. My beloved teacher Dr. V.R. Chitale has taught me
surgery and has given me the opportunity of comparative study
by treating the cases surgically as well as by Homoeopathic
medicines. His proper guidance and effective methods of
teaching enabled me to complete this book.
With these few words I hand over this book to my
colleagues, my friends and my students who are obligated to
treat the sick persons and serve of the diseased human beings.
I shall be very much pleased and it shall be the best prize
for my efforts put in this book, if it is found useful by students
of the Homoeopathic medical colleges and my co-workers, the
