About Department

The Department started as Department of Medicine and Surgery in 1948, became functioning as full fledged department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology in 1966. The department of Surgery and Radiology has the mandate for teaching and research in various disciplines of the subject viz. general surgery, anaesthesiology, radiology, orthopaedics and experimental surgery. The Department has responsibility of management of surgical affections of the animals. The teaching programme of the department have been planned to impart effective practical training to the undergraduate and postgraduate students. Apart from offering courses to the students of B.V.Sc. & A.H. programme, the department offers M. V. Sc. and Ph. D. degree in Veterinary Surgery and Radiology. The faculty members collaborate with the Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex for internship programme and to offer clinical practice courses to the undergraduate and post Graduate students. The department has a well equipped radiology section to provide diagnostic services for small and large animals. Clinical camps and clinical conferences are held routinely at district level of the Haryana State to provide short courses/refresher training to the field veterinarians and to extract information about the problems. Short term training courses are arranged from time to time for scientists and teachers from other institutes. This department has made landmark achievements in the field of anaesthesia, diagnostic imaging and surgery particularly diaphragmatic hernia in buffaloes. Persons of repute have occupied the chairs of professors or head of the department. The faculty members of this department have always followed time honoured tradition of team work and made collective efforts to maintain high standards of teaching and research. The students and teachers of this department are holding or have held top positions in the institutes/organizations/profession. Many of them have been on foreign teaching assignments. First Ph.D. in Veterinary Surgery and Radiology in India was awarded from this department. First large animal X-ray machine in India was installed in this department. The idea of forming Indian Society for Veterinary Surgery was mooted in this department and society was formed with headquarters here in 1977.

 Major Research Achievements

  • Diaphragmatic herniorrhaphy (DH) technique in buffaloes through trans-thoracic and trans-abdominal approaches was advocated for the first time in clinical cases from this department.
  • Assessment of safety and efficacy of various preanaesthtics and anaesthetics (injectables and inhalants) in different species of animals and suitable recommendations were made for clinical use.
  • The survival rate after diaphragmatic herniorrhaphy in buffaloes is more than 90%. by using balanced anaesthetic combinations.
  • Studies on upward fixation of patella and arthritis in large animals
  • Standardization and clinical application of internal and external fixation techniques for repair of fractures in large and small animals
  • Significant studies were conducted on osteomylitis with special reference to kinetics of some antibiotics in bovines.
  • Studies on urolithiasis and pathophysiology of uremia in cattle and buffaloes
  • Evaluation of some analgesics combinations in orthopaedic cases
  • Attention has also been focussed on better pre and post operative management of surgical cases, fluid therapy, functional stomach disorders in buffaloes, efficacy of antioxidant therapy in buffaloes suffering from traumatic reticuloperitonitis and diaphragmatic hernia.
  • Radiography in large animals was started for the first time in India for diagnosis of different clinical conditions and contrast radiography techniques like osteomedullography, barium meal studies, myelography, sialography, intravenous pyelography, cystography and arthrography were also standardised for use in small and large animals.
  • Ultrasonographic findings of different organs of small and large animal have been documented during developmental stages and in clinical cases.
