Internal medicine is a medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and medical treatment of diseases in adults. The field of internal medicine encompasses various subspecialties, such as cardiology, immunology, allergy, endocrinology, infectious diseases, hematology, nephrology, and pulmonology.
At the Department of Internal Medicine, a comprehensive program of disease prevention and health improvement is provided. Our internal medicine physicians provide a wide range of care for adolescents and adults, including periodic health examinations with proper screening for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and common, treatable malignancies. We focus on finding risk factors of diseases and health management along with interventions. Our doctors create face-to-face relationships with their patients to develop unique care plans and, if necessary, have access to numerous specialists in our hospital.
Patients with a wide range of ailments may get full primary care services in an outpatient environment, and inpatient patients can receive comprehensive treatment for a variety of conditions. Furthermore, the department is well-equipped with the most up-to-date technology for the treatment of acute and chronic health issues such as diabetes and coronary artery disease, as well as acute diseases such as respiratory tract infection and joint disorders. Clinical services are provided by the department, which include both primary and hospital-based treatment. The department’s mission is to deliver world-class comprehensive treatment to residents of Bengaluru. An extensive staff of committed and highly qualified physicians, all of whom have received extensive training in the treatment and management of common and chronic disorders, oversees the operation. Infectious diseases are treated adequately at the department. Over the years, the department has dealt with a huge number of cases of infectious illnesses, including influenza, hepatitis, TB, pneumonia, malaria, mononucleosis, endocarditis, etc.
The department is equipped with a cutting-edge facility designed to provide intensive care unit (ICU) treatment and isolation for infectious patients. Critically sick individuals have a better probability of surviving in ICUs. The intensive care unit (ICU) in our facility has been carefully designed and implemented by a team of highly skilled critical care nurses and aides in order to meet the specific needs of critically ill patients.
We treat conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. Blood pressure in the arteries, the channels that transport blood from the heart to other parts of the body, is excessively high in people with high blood pressure, or hypertension. High blood pressure may be controlled with simple dietary and exercise modifications, but drugs that must be taken for the rest of one’s life may be prescribed if the blood pressure is too high or the lifestyle adjustments fail. Diabetes is characterized by abnormally high amounts of glucose in the blood. The first steps in managing blood sugar levels are a healthy diet and regular physical activity. The sickness may be managed with the use of medications. Different medications exhibit distinct mechanisms of action. Insulin resistance may be reduced by some, while insulin production can be increased by others.
The department of internal medicine is perhaps best defined by its unique scientific approach to medicine, rather than by a specific group of patients being cared for or the practice setting. It specializes in providing ambulatory treatment to the community. Our staff is composed of pharmacists, physician assistants, and registered nurses with extensive expertise. Aside from that, we provide a broad variety of outpatient treatments, ranging from chronic illness management, minor surgery, and basic procedures for seniors to comprehensive medical care for the whole family. We can diagnose illnesses in their early stages via the use of diagnostic scans and testing.
The Department of Internal Medicine places a strong emphasis on providing multidisciplinary treatment to patients of all ages. As part of its mission to aid patients in their rehabilitation, the team also offers health education and expert guidance to them and their carers. In addition, the team collaborates with other departments in order to conduct a thorough assessment of the patient’s health and to carry out sophisticated therapies. Because of this, doctors can give all patients individualized and effective therapy, as well as follow-up testing to confirm that they have recovered completely.
