A new YOU, beyond age, with our care
How about making your second innings of your life is as vibrant as the first? At BBH, we help you age well; ensure you are physically fit and enable you to enjoy complete independence. BBH is amongst the first few hospitals in Bangalore to have a specialized Geriatric department.
We understand the needs of the elderly and our Geriatric Medicine team is specially trained to identify, treat and manage various conditions related to ageing. Unlike other medical disciplines, Geriatric Medicine is not a disease-oriented speciality; it is an organ function-based speciality. Our team works to ensure that all your organs are healthy and work perfectly in tandem with each other so that you can be a healthy individual. In addition to caring for your physical health, we also look after your social, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.
In a nutshell, we realize that all our patients have invested their entire lives to look after their loved ones, made sacrifices to make life comfortable for their family and ignored their health. Thus, we go above and beyond to give our patients the best care at an affordable cost so that they can be healthy, active and happy members of the society. We offer a team-based treatment approach beyond the boundaries of clinical divisions, departments and occupations.
