Dr. Ram Manohar, Research Director at Amrita Centre for Advanced Research in Ayurveda, Amritapuri and Dr. Puneet Dhar, Head of Gastro Surgery Department of Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Centre, Kochi, opined about Ayurvedic Drugs for Antibiotics During Surgery. A Meerut hospital has successfully substituted ayurvedic drugs for antibiotics during a prostatic surgery of an 83-year-old man. According to Dr. Ram Manohar, "This is a very interesting development. It is an eye opener in this period when resistance is being developed for antibiotics.” Dr. Puneet Dhar said, ayurvedic drugs' potential use as antibiotics is immense, "but we need to prove it in proper infections".
