Ilmul Jarahat (Surgery) has always been an integral part of Unani System of Medicine. Abul Al Qasim Zuhrawi (Albucasis), an Arab Unani physician, wrote a book entitled ‘Kitab al-Tasrif. He described thyroidectomy, extraction of cataracts, removal of kidney stones, tonsillectomy, craniotomy, caesarean section and dentistry. He has also described more than 200 surgical instruments.
the department was established in 2012 with the objective of developing competent surgeons, academicians and researchers in the field of Jarahiyat. Admission to the first batch of PG in Jarahiyat started from session 2014-15.
The drugs or medicines used in the treatment of patients may be Unani, Ayurvedic, Homeopathic or Allopathic, but the surgical procedures or Jarahat adopted today are entirely advanced and are universally acceptable throughout world.
