The present book “The Leech Therapy and Modern Surgery” covers most of the available knowledge based on various researches regarding leech and its therapy; it also contains Indications such as plastic and reconstructive surgery, general surgery, ENT, Ischemic heart diseases, method of practice of leech therapy with adverse effects and contraindications. In other words, the book is a guide to practice Leech therapy, especially in the field of Surgery. This book will definitely help practitioners to practice Leech Therapy.
Unani Medicine has various rituals by which patients are treated. Leech therapy is one of the important amongst them. It was practiced in European countries also. However, it was relegated to back benches as there are not many authoritative books on this subject. I am happy that Dr. Manzoor Ahmad has undertaken a step in this direction and written a very well researched book on this topic, which includes his own experience of leech therapy.

I am sure that this effort of Dr. Manzoor Ahmad will give a good status in the Academic field. It will
be an asset to the research scholars for their research work especially in field of leech therapy.
