Since morning, there was a lot of news that Ayurveda doctors will also perform eye, ear and throat surgery along with general and orthopedic surgery. The Ministry of AYUSH has now given a clarification in this news. The ministry has made it clear that the government has not implemented any new rules. It was announced only in the year 2016.
Ministry of AYUSH clarified
The Ministry of AYUSH added one more thing which is very important. The ministry said that 58 special surgeons are doctors, only they will be allowed to perform the operation, no other Ayurvedic doctor can perform the operation. After the news came, it seemed as if any Ayurvedic and recognized doctor can do the operation.
People were confused earlier
The students of Ayurveda were now given the education of surgery, but their rights to perform the surgery were not made clear by the government. According to the government notification, now students doing PG in Ayurveda surgery will be specially trained for eye, nose, ear, throat as well as general surgery. These students will have the right to perform breast lumps, ulcers, diseases of the urethra, clearance of foreign substances from the stomach, glaucoma, cataract removal and many surgeries.
IMA fueled by Ayurveda doctors getting right to surgery
Leaving Lakshmanrekha will result in fatalities: IMA
The Indian Medical Association has termed this decision of CCIM as one-sided and indecent. He has strongly criticized CCIM, calling Ayurvedic doctors incapable of surgery. The statement issued by the institution said, “IMA has drawn the Lakshman Rekha which will result in fatal consequences if it is crossed.” He further said, “IMA advises the council to devise its own method of surgery based on ancient knowledge and stay away from the procedure based on modern medical science.”
IMA’s big question – what will be the importance of NEET
In addition, the IMA demanded the government not to post such modern medical science doctors in colleges of Indian medicine. He questioned that if such shortcuts are accepted, then what will be the importance of NEET? Along with appealing to the government, the IMA also warned its members and members of the fraternity not to teach students of any other system of modern medicine. The IMA said, “It will make every effort to stop the mixing of different systems.” He said, “Let each system grow on its own.”
