Why is Internal Medicine Important?
As a consequence of the aging of the general population and the longer life expectancy, there are more and more diseases or processes that simultaneously affect various organs or systems, so the role of the internist in hospitals is gaining more and more relevance.
In the words of Dr. Abataneo, "internal medicine deals with comprehensive care, from adolescence to old age, with special emphasis on diagnoses and non-surgical treatments of pathologies." This area of medicine also deals with the preventive medicine of pathologies, as well as the adequate follow-up of patients, both in hospital and outpatient settings ”.
Doctors Abataneo and Vanyo bring years of experience in the specialty, which will strengthen the HLA hospital team Saint Charles dealing with patients without a precise diagnosis, with processes not focused on one organ or system, complex patients with multiple pathologies, patients with prevalent diseases, such as heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, patients with multi-organ diseases, patients with a disease exacerbated chronic or multiple pathological patients.
"The internist must be prepared to respond to the role of the general practitioner or that of the reference specialist in certain areas of knowledge, integrating the opinions of other doctors for the benefit of the comprehensive care of the patient," says Dr. Vanyo.
