Shalya Tantra, an ancient surgical discipline, encompasses all techniques aimed at removing elements that cause pain or unhappiness in the body or psyche. Shalya tantra therapy was popular in ancient times since it gave quick relief when compared to other methods. Sushruta is credited with upgrading the art of surgery to one of the most prestigious areas of medicine. Shalya Chikitsa was the favoured approach for conditions that required prompt treatment. Sushruta elevated surgery in mediaeval India to a new level, and the period became known as "The Golden Age of Surgery" in ancient India. The Indian Association of Plastic Surgeons salutes this famous Ayurvedic surgeon by honouring him with a prominent position in the association's logo. In this overview, we've tried to highlight some of the Sushruta Samhita's old surgical principles that are being used today with minor changes. Sushruta's original text goes into great length regarding numerous surgical treatments, such as how to deal with various sorts of tumours, bone fractures, internal and external traumas, problems during childbirth, and blockages in intestinal loops, among other things.
