The Internal Medicine department is the first point of contact for any patient seeking tertiary care and as such is the foundation of the hospital. We take a comprehensive approach to patient care and analysis, referring to specialists when required and using the latest advances in medical technology. Through the outpatient clinic, a therapeutic and preventive health care approach is given. The department is managed by an excellent and competent group of doctors including consultants, senior residents and nursing professionals.
The specialty of internal medicine, by definition, is all-embracing and concerned with every aspect of pathology and organ-based specialties. It covers a wide range of conditions affecting the internal organs of the body – the heart, the lungs, the liver and gastro-intestinal tract, the kidneys and urinary tract, the brain, spinal column, nerves, muscles and joints. Although some diseases specifically affect individual organs, the majority of common diseases – arteriosclerosis, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer – may affect internal organs of the body. The interns at the Wellkin Hospital are trained to recognise and manage a broad range of diseases and, with the aging population, many patients with chronic and multiple disorders.
We have expertise in prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of common disorders and communicable diseases and round-the-clock back-up from all allied and specialty departments.
The sub-specialties of the Internal medicine department includes:
- Adolescent medicine
- Critical care medicine
- Geriatric medicine
