Infectious diseases [ID] is a branch of medicine that deals with investigating, diagnosing, and treating diseases caused by different infectious agents like bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. ID is a growing specialty in India and is the need of the hour in view of exponentially increasing antibiotic resistance and difficulty in managing such resistant organisms.
We at AIG hospitals have qualified and competent doctors trained in the specialty from renowned institutions in India. We also have a good team of Microbiologists with a well-equipped lab supporting our ID doctors with the diagnosis of infectious diseases in patients, infection control practices, and AMSP (anti-microbial stewardship program)
