Sir,

It has been very strange time in India in respect of medical fraternity nowadays. One side modern medicine is fighting with Covid-19 pandemic since March 2020 and other side a very shocking news came from CCIM (Central Council of Indian Medicine) regarding surgical branches. On November 20, 2020, CCIM has released amendment regulation enlisting surgeries which is generally performed by modern medicine qualified dentist, gynaecologist, ophthalmologist, ENT surgeon and general surgeons can be performed by AAYUSH doctors, who are not trained for doing it modern medicine way.[1] Though no any neurosurgical procedure is included in this list, the day is not far that mixing of various pathies may damage of integrity of pure neurosurgery which is 100% evidence based and clinically as well as globally accepted. As far as resistance is concerned, it is offered by IMA (Indian medical association) in form of press release.[2]

Though there is no shadow on neurosurgery till now but we should stand along IMA and other surgical society for integrity and betterment of public health offered by us. During covid-19 times, neurosurgery branch undergo modification in terms of patient management, operative intervention protocols and patient stratification to get the best result during challenging times which is also mentioned by Dr. BK Misra in recent issue.[3] Neurosurgeons of India has offered best possible service to public with affordability and availability when we compare it with the western worlds. This is the high time when recognition must be offered to Indian doctors for their countless effort but not by mixing with the other differently established medical streams and science.

It might be now or never for us to back other surgical specialty might be they are waiting at our doors on next hour. We must unite for ourselves and for maintaining respect that we have received during the tough times. Mixing stream is beneficial not for modern medicine neither for patient care. Neurosurgeons across India must unite and raise their voice against mixing medical stream because if not today then tomorrow it's upon us to defend ourselves.
