Expertise

Geriatric Medicine is a speciality that deals with health care of Elderly (Senior Citizens 60 years of age and above).
Geriatrician is a physician that deals with preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative services of elderly.

They deal with full spectrum of diseases in General or Internal Medicine, but with specific focus only on elderly population; in addition to age related issues like memory problems and cognition issues, decreased mobility (e.g. Parkinson Disease) and falls, polypharmacy (typically elderly take more than 5 medicines daily), dizziness, urinary problems, constipation, malnutrition, sleep problem, depression and other mood disorders, joint problems and arthritis; to name a few.

Geriatricians know the importance of maintaining functional independence in senior citizens in their daily activities like getting up from bed, going to toilet, having bath, managing their own medications and household.
