The Susruta-samhita is mainly a surgical treatise but it has also to deal with several complications arising during the course of treatment of surgical diseases.The present edition of the Susruta-samhita is singular in the sense that, besides presenting faithful translation of the text, it brings forth, for the first time, the English translation of the Nibandha-sangraha commentary by Dalhana who is regarded as the authority on the subject. The commentary supplements the text in many respects and as such proves an essential tool for understanding the samhita clearly and fully.
