India and particularly Rajasthan is 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 care for such patients are limited.
Children due to their different physiology from adults need specialist for them i.e. Pediatrician (Child specialist), similarly elderly have different physiology as compared to their younger counterparts, hence need specialist for their old age i.e. Geriatrician (Senior Citizen Specialist).
Geriatric Medicine is a specialty of Medicine that deals exclusively with the “healthcare of elderly” (Senior Citizens of ≧60 years). We take great pride in being the only hospital in Rajasthan to provide dedicated care to senior citizens under an MD-Geriatric Medicine.
