Buddhasahassanāmāvali - Verse 13
बुद्धं तं पणमाम्यहं.
Buddhaṃ taṃ paṇamāmyahaṃ.
I bow to the Buddha,
The supreme surgeon who removed grief and woe,
A radical destroyer of the strong stakes of craving,
And a great harbinger of peace and happiness.
- mahāsokasallakatto - a supreme surgeon (dealing with) terrible grief and woe
(mahā + soka + salla + katto)1 great + grief + arrow + cut off, remove)
- mahākhīlavisodhano - a radical destroyer of the strong stakes of craving

 Just like a surgeon removes a poisoned arrow the Buddha removes the arrow of grief
