IMA angry on allowing surgery to Ayurveda docs

Monday, 23 November 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

Taking strong exception to the Union government’s decision to allow the post graduate students of Indian medicines like Ayurveda to formally practice general surgery including Ortho and dentistry, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has said that the move would corrupt modern medicine. The Uttarakhand chapter of the IMA has demanded that the government should reconsider the decision. The general secretary of the IMA Uttarakhand, Dr D D Chaudhury told The Pioneer that the government should have taken IMA into confidence before taking the decision.  " Many questions need to be answered. Who would give anaesthesia to the patients who would be operated upon by the doctors of Ayurveda? Would it be a pure or mixed system of medicine? The Supreme Court in one its decision had stated that allopathic doctors cannot give Ayurveda medicines. The reverse of it should also be true’’ Dr Chaudhury said.

In a recent order, the regulator of Ayurveda study and practice in the country, the Central Council of Indian Medicines (CCIM) has allowed post graduate degree holders of Ayurveda to perform a variety of surgical procedures.
