Clinical Excellence in responding
to the most difficult-to-diagnose medical situations.

Internal Medicine is a medical specialty dedicated to the individual as a whole and applicable to all age groups, with special focus on difficult diagnoses, using specific approaches to each individual situation.

Internal Medicine professionals center their approach on individuality, comprehensiveness, and complexity of each patient, considering the totality of their organism, and positioning it within a social, professional, and familial framework. Internal Medicine therefore approaches the patient as a whole and not in terms of separate organs and systems.

Lusíadas Saúde Internal Medicine Unit teams are characterized by clinical excellence and extensive  experience, making use of their profound, up-to-date knowledge in various medical areas in order to present the most appropriate therapeutic options for each case.
