Maladies Internes


Our Internal Medicine department is the specialty that adult patients think of directly and apply to first.

The diagnosis and treatment of many systemic diseases, including chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and many conditions associated with aging, is carried out in internal medicine.

Patients with complaints such as fever, difficulty breathing, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches are first examined in the outpatient internal medicine clinic.

Across the world and in our country, general internal medicine is the department that refers and organizes patients to the relevant specialties. If the patient does not have a specific diagnosis, we recommend that you contact the general internal medicine outpatient clinic first. A general internal medicine outpatient clinic is very important in terms of initial examination and referral of the patient to the right department.

In parallel with the scientific and technological advancement of modern medicine, the Department of Internal Medicine at the Cyprus Central Hospital is divided into several sub-divisions.

Within this context, general internal medicine has a critical role to play in ensuring that patients are appropriately referred to internal medicine subspecialties such as nephrology, gastroenterology, hematology, endocrinology, and rheumatology, and in collecting and co-evaluating the results from the different subspecialties.

Internal medicine is essential in the management of all adult health issues, immunizations, and medications. Elderly patients, those in need of care, and those cared for at home may require extra careful evaluation. Patients with a variety of conditions may be taking multiple medications as they age, especially to protect their livers and kidneys.

The service includes outpatient examinations, diagnostic tests, in-patient monitoring and treatment, emergency services in the emergency department as part of an algorithmic approach for emergency patients, preoperative and postoperative patient examinations, and consultation services in different departments. Separate check-up and screening programs are organized for all age groups.

Our internal medicine department collaborates with all the medical departments to deliver solutions to our patients' health problems through a multidisciplinary approach.
