Special Clinics :
Rheumatology Clinic :
Rheumatic diseases are difficult to recognize until they have progressed. Thus it is essential as many rheumatic disorders respond best to treatment in the early stages of the disease. Thus hospital has Rheumatology clinic with diagnostic care and treatment for an extensive range of rheumatic ailments and diseases that would be able to detect the disease at an early stage and prevent progression and complications.

Rheumatic diseases are chronic diseases, often complex and often misdiagnosed. Rheumatic diseases may cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints and other supporting body structures, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. However, rheumatic diseases can affect other areas of the body, including internal organs. Some rheumatic diseases involve connective tissues (called connective tissue diseases), while others may be caused by an autoimmune disorder, which means the bodies immune system attacks its own healthy cells and tissues.

Elder Care Clinic :
The Elder Care Clinic offers an opportunity to be evaluated through medical management to pre-empt evolving disease, check for the stability for any disorder that is already present and to revitalize your body. We also focus on mental well being through psychological counseling. Physically too you have to be active and maintain muscle tone with the most appropriate exercises. We would also give instructions on fall prevention.

An elderly patient may visit his doctor for an acute or for a chronic problem. During these visits, doubts and apprehensions of an elderly person may not be addressed adequately due to lack of time, priority and opportunity. As a result very often these seemingly trivial issues are pushed back until they become acute or major illnesses, to illustrate a memory lapse due to aging as opposed to dementia.
