Medicine is a broad phrase that encompasses various specialties and sub-specialties, each with a distinct or intertwined function. Internal medicine, or general medicine, is a speciality that investigates a wide range of disorders that affect the body and whose primary treatment does not entail surgery.
Internal medicine and general medicine are both terms for a medical specialty that entails scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to identify and treat a wide range of disorders that affect humans. Internists specialize in internal medicine and are trained to diagnose complex and perplexing medical problems in patients with multiple diseases. Internists are also concerned with health promotion and disease prevention.
Heart illnesses, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and chronic lung disease are frequent patient problems that internists see daily, even though internists may treat common illnesses and complex health concerns.
An internist examines the entire problem, evaluating how the body functions, its systems, and so on because a problem in one area might lead to complications in other areas.
Internists have advanced endocrinology, rheumatology, neurology, and infectious diseases, among other internal medicine specialties.
Patients can benefit from general medicine since it provides a complete healthcare service that treats all general infections and consequences emerging from numerous disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.
Diagnosis, management, and non-surgical treatment of severe or uncommon illnesses focus on general medicine, a medical specialty that includes both internal and external medicine.
Among the services provided by the General Medicine Care Group are acute medicine (emergency admissions), gastroenterology, endocrinology, diabetes, respiratory medicine, rheumatology, and cardiology. The General Medicine Care Group also provides a range of specialty medical care for inpatient and day cases.
In our organization, the Division of General Medicine comprises specialist doctors and allied health professionals who are committed to providing patient-centred, evidence-based medical treatment in a clinical environment complemented by teaching and research. This division’s objective is to put healthcare of worldwide standards within reach of every individual by reaching high levels of clinical care through integrated clinical practice, education, and research.

Patients with complex clinical problems are seen by our experienced internists, who provide outpatient and inpatient primary care services for adults as well as consultation services.
They also conduct a preoperative evaluation, which ensures that the surgery goes smoothly and successfully.
An intensive-care or critical-care physician is a medical specialist who deals with the diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening diseases that necessitate the use of advanced organ support and invasive monitoring.
It is natural for patients to be admitted to intensive care if they have unstable blood pressure (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (such as needing ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, or the cumulative effects of multiple organ failures, which are now more commonly referred to as multiple organ dysfunction syndromes. They may also be accepted for intensive/invasive monitoring, such as during the critical hours following major surgery when it is determined that the patient is too unstable to be transferred to a less intensely monitored facility or for other reasons.
Our primary goals are the well-being and comfort of you and your family. We make sure that patients are fully informed before taking any action in their best interests and that their questions are promptly answered.
