Welcome to Department of Sangyaharan (Estd. 2011)

Prof.  K K Pandey, Head



Founded recently in the year 2011, the Department of Sangyaharan, Banaras Hindu University has been one of the leading departments in the country. The teaching and research in the specialty of Sangyaharan was started in the Department of Shalya Shalakya with its inception in the year 1963 to promote surgical disciplines of Ayurved . Primarily teaching of Sangyaharan was started as a Section of Department of Shalya Shalakya under Dynamic Leadership of Late Dr. S.B.Pande, Reader of the Department .It has not only provided up-to-date teaching resources but also taken lead in introducing newer disciplines to the teaching curricula. Thus, introduction of subjects such as Ayurvedic Pain Management and Ayuvedic Palliative Care in the teaching curricula, much ahead of other departments in the country, helped to revive the surgical disciplines of Ayurved as a living, growing medical stream. In that respect, the Department has been a pioneer in Sangyaharan teaching in India. The scientific merit of the faculty has been recognized from time to time through honours and awards, such as Ashwinau Award and Best Ph.D. Thesis Award. The faculty members have been serving on editorial boards of various journals in their domains of expertise and as members of national and international decision making bodies that formulate general policy/plans on research and education. The tradition of strong training and excellence has been maintained and expanded during the last 50 years.
