Acharya Sushruta who is worshipped as the Father of surgery has described various modalities relating to both surgical and para surgical procedures. Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery), an ancient para surgical modality, Acharya Sushruta elaborated the concept of considering the feasibility and effectiveness of the use of Agni karma in numerous diseases. Which are still applicable in the present era.
