Internal Medicine

The specialty of internal medicine 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 many internal organs of the body.

The internist is trained to recognise and manage a broad range of diseases and, with the aging population, many patients with chronic and multiple disorders. The specialist in internal medicine – the internist – most commonly practices in hospitals where he may care for the patients during an acute illness or supervise their care in outpatient clinics.

At Elpis Medical Centre we have the opportunity for in-patients care and we provide Treatment to a wide range of conditions affecting the internal organs of the body .
