Geriatric Medicine

India and particularly Rajasthan has been undergoing a significant demographic transition with a rapidly increasing aging population. The share of the population over the age of 60 is projected to increase from 8% in 2020 to nearly 20% in 2050. It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more people older than 60 years than those below 15 years. This population due to its complex medical needs requires a specialist to take care i.e. a Geriatrician. Over the next decades, the number of elderly people in India is on a rise but doctors specially trained to take for such patients are limited.

Geriatric medicine is a specialty that focuses on the health care of elderly people. At Rajasthan hospital, we feel “To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors”. With this feeling in our hearts, we are committed to providing the comprehensive specialist care to senior citizens for their medical problems and problems specific to aging. We take great pride in being the first hospital in Rajasthan to provide care for senior citizens under an MD, Geriatric Medicine. Our doctor is highly skilled in providing acute, chronic and palliative care to senior citizens.
