Internal Medicine Center
Most conditions found in internal medicine require medicine as the main form of treatment. Currently the field has been divided according to the different body functions such as the nervous system, digestive system, kidney function, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, and endocrine system.
Our Internal Medicine Center provides treatment that connects the different systems holistically, similar to having a personal or family doctor. Care given includes both physical and mental and focuses not only on treatment but prevention of occurrence and/or reoccurrence.
With these goals as motivation the Internal Medicine Center at Samitivej Chinatown Hospital is prepared to offer diagnosis, treatment, and consultation on the following:
Pre -Operative Evaluation
These are often done in cooperation with surgeons from different departments and involve a filtering process to ensure that patients will be fit for surgery. The evaluation will include reviewing medication, supplements, history of allergies, blood test, lung X-Ray, EEG, and more as required. Data obtained will then be analyzed keeping in mind the specific nature of the patient’s surgery. This will help to ensure best results from the surgery and prevent complications from lung, heart, infections, and the like.
We offer full services by specialized IV Nurse Team prepared to provide professional care for patients and relatives.
