Creating Waves of Awareness

Dear members,

There is a very fixed idea in many homoeopaths in not reading surgery. Some of their comment :

"If you read surgery will you practice surgery?"

"What is the use of studying surgery? It is waste of time."

"It is an allied subject"

"Will you be a homoeopathic surgeon?"


These wrong notions in minds of some old and pessimist thinkers are to be rectified.

What do you suggest in this regard? Please share your thnking.


Firstly I want to mention "Surgery" is not only performing surgery, it is a subject dealing with knowledge of surgical diseases. The Study of this subject helps in diagnosing surgical illnesses. The medical diseases are categorised under Practice of medicine.


Some probable reasons of not reading this subject:

  • Some Homoeopaths find it hard to comprehend.
  • Some may feel what is the use
  • Others think it has nothing to do in homoeopathy

Please find the link below to have more information in the importance of reading Surgery.

Regards and happy reading

This is the main reason for not taking interest in surgery. They think that the meaning of surgery is to perform surgery. Thank you for highlighting misconception.


You are welcome Sir, I find this type of comments very absurd, that is the reason of clearing out the misconception.

 I cant say how true it is but surgery is a compulsory subject now a days and every homoeopath has to read and understand this subject if he avoids than how can he or she pass his BHMS  examination.

                                              If somehow any body manages to get pass and attain the knowledge which is just required to get the passing marks in examinations he or she will fail in practical field at clinic, Its an important subject not just to read but to understand so that  the homoeopath should never fail in diagnosing the disease and identifying the limitation of Homoeopathy as per prognosis of the case.

Wonderful reply Dr. Sajjad, i agree with your opinion.

Thanks for the reply Dr.Vikas.

Since I teach this subject, I go through many such conversations mentioned above. Once I was taking an university exam, where the other examiner said to the student, "Are you going to become a surgeon that you are detailing so much? Just tell the therapeutics" What a pity! And when these type of people come in their practice, they treat a case of fissure ano as piles!

You are right, but nothing can be done to these people. Are they teachers?
Yes they are! Teaching for years more than my age!

Surgery must be done in many situations to help heal deep wounds and to save a life.

When a patient has a broken bone, the surgeon must reset the bone. When there are cavities in the teeth, they must be cleaned and filled, or a rotten tooth must even be pulled by an oral surgeon. When children run home with cuts and lacerations, the skin must be sewn together. When homeopathics are not given in time, an appendix must be removed. The many situations, instances and the aftermath of accidents require excellent surgeons. Homeopaths in their day-to-day clinics can do minor surgery when needed. I once had an ingrown eyelash that was causing twitching and much discomfort. When the opthamologist pulled out the lash I made some comment like, "Gee, I could have used a tweezer and with an upset voice she replied this is "Surgery." 


Aphorism § 13

Therefore disease (that does not come within the province of manual surgery) considered, as it is by the allopathists, as a thing separate from the living whole, from the organism and its animating vital force, and hidden in the interior, be it ever so subtle a character, is an absurdity, that could only be imagined by minds of a materialistic stamp, and has for thousands of years given to the prevailing system of medicine all those pernicious impulses that have made it a truly mischievous (non-healing) art.


Since Surgery is part of our society, we must not overlook it. thank you Dr Basu for starting the Surgery and Homeopathy Group

This kind of surgery is allowed in homeopathy.


Minor surgical procedures can be performed in our OPDs. Minor procedures includes those do not require to be done in an OT.

An allopathic MBBS doctor can also do only minor procedures after MBBS. Only when they complete their post-graduation in surgery, only then can they perform major procedures.

Yes Hahnemann has clearly demarcated the surgical diseases from the dynamic diseases in aph13
Ø Homeopathy: Often avoids Surgery,prevents complications – pre,during &post.
Ø Surgery comes into play when the physiological changes cannot be brought back to the normal position by medication. When the part becomes irreparable, we replace it or remove it & the condition improves E.g. when a tumor develops, not corrected by medicines we remove it by surgery.
Ø Disease primarily a disturbance in the vital force which is only functional in character when there is no apparent pathology & so surgery cannot be applied. If this disturbance persists for sometime & when the human being is not able to overcome the condition and it leads to gross pathological changes which may or may not be brought back to normalcy by medicines, wherein the role of surgery becomes of paramount importance.

Ø Pathology is the ultimate of the disease process and not the cause of the disease. Surgery eliminates the ultimate of the disease and not its cause. But this ultimate becomes a foreign matter which is an obstacle to cure & the complete recovery is not possible unless this obstacle is removed.

Ø So surgery does not deal with that something unknown which is residing in the body and which can not be located.

Ø But in case of injuries caused to the body from without, the surgical treatment is necessary only to the extent that the parts injured require mechanical aid whereby the external obstruction to cure is removed mechanically. But in such injuries also the living organism requires active dynamic aid to put it in a position to restore the organism to health and homoeopathic treatment is called for.

Ø On one hand surgery can play an important role in medicine since some conditions such as congenital deformities, structural problems, severe injuries, or life-threatening pathological conditions are simply not treatable without it.

Ø Homoeopathic surgery is that form of treatment where the so-called surgical cases can be averted, managed completely or helped in the pre-operative & post-operative stages with homeopathic medicines only.

Ø Homoeopathy in pre and post surgery:

Surgery, at best, is an unpleasant process. Not only does the surgical wound cause pain, but general anesthesia causes its own side effects. Once it is established that surgery is necessary, homeopathic remedies can play a vital role in reducing any complications that may arise as well as accelerating healing and recovery.

Homeopathic remedies can help:
Reduce fear and anxiety prior to surgery
Aconitum Napellus:

Excess bleeding during surgery,
If surgery poses the potential for a large loss of blood or undergoing intravenous (IV) therapy -
Arnica montana.

Stop Postoperative Bleeding: Cinchona officinalis,Ipecacuanha, Secale cornutum

Recovery of digestive function following surgery
Nausea and Vomiting:

Constipation: Arnica,China Raphanus,,
Phase Out Flatulence:
Ø Carbo vegetabilis
Ø Cinchona officinalis,
Ø Colocynthis

Ø Swelling, Stiffness, pain, bruise and Soreness
