According to the National Library of Medicine findings, rheumatological disorders impact about 24% of the population of India. Rural areas have the highest concentration of patients since their daily lives involve heavy manual work. Yet, treatment for rheumatic diseases is scarce in such regions. Caritas Hospital is committed to bringing highly specialized treatment for rheumatic problems to people in Kerala's rural communities and urban areas. Consistent medical service quality and affordability have earned us the name of the best rheumatology hospital in Kerala.
The Rheumatology Department at Caritas Hospital offers a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and managing rheumatic disease. We provide in-house laboratory services for routine tests and several specialized investigations. Our dedicated imaging modalities include X-ray, musculoskeletal ultrasound and MRI. Our specialist team comprises rheumatology & clinical immunology consultants with dedicated nursing staff. We work closely with other departments within the hospital to provide you with the best possible care.
