A person who prescribes Ayurvedic remedies (which is what I assume you mean by an 'Ayurvedic doctor') is not a doctor in a legal medical sense, which means they should not be performing surgery. However, a medical doctor who happens to also practice Ayurvedic medicine can perform surgery. (Although in the UK, if your surgeon still has the prefix 'Doctor', you should be worried since this means they are not qualified. When a surgeon qualifies, their 'title' goes back to "Mr/Mrs/Ms" until they become a Professor, when it goes to "Prof.")
