Foreword

It is matter of great pleasure to write a foreword for the monograph on Surgical Ethics written by Dr. G.D.Singhal and Shri Damodar Sharma Gour. That surgery as practiced by Sushruta and his followers in the ancient days was of a very high order is a well-known fact. Although the art of surgery of those days can by no means be compared with the most exciting advancements of modern era, one can certainly take advantage of the remarkable contributions they have made in some of the spheres of surgery. This will enable the modern surgeon to improve not only the care of his surgical cases but his attitude towards surgery as well.

It will not be out of place to mention here that due to the great progress made in the various techniques of surgery in the recent times we are more often liable to forget the importance of psychological and philosophical aspects of the care of surgical patients. Many a times these factors would greatly help us to improve the total care of the patients if proper attention is paid during the pre-operative, operative and post-operative periods. Therefore, this monograph will serve as an important guide to all those interested in knowing the non-operative methods of management of the surgical patient both from the historical point of view and the aspect of improving these measures to suit the modern times. Those whose wish to dive deep in the subject may well refer to the original books from where these aspect have been made. By giving an easy and readable explanation of the original texts quoted in the monograph the authors have rendered sincere service for advancing the cause of surgical science as a whole.
