Our infectious disease clinics provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of infections. We also provide travel immunizations and other prevention services. Our team of infectious disease doctors have specialized expertise in many areas, including:
A chronic fever of more than 100(o) that has no known origin.
An infectious disease caused or transmitted by a parasite.
An inflammatory condition caused by a fungus.
Bone and joint infections
Bacterial infections that circulate through the bloodstream until they reach a bone, joint, or muscle. Bacteria then leave the bloodstream and multiply in the bone, joint, or muscle tissues.
Diseases of travelers
Wide range of infectious bacterial and viral illnesses acquired while traveling.
Also known as TB, a chronic bacterial infection that usually infects the lungs, although other organs are sometimes involved. TB is primarily an airborne disease (spread by air droplets from infected people when they cough or sneeze).
Chronic lung infections
Respiratory infections in the lungs and chest that occur repeatedly over time.
Helicobacter pylori infection
A spiral-shaped bacterium found in the stomach, which (along with acid secretion) damages stomach and duodenal tissue, causing inflammation and peptic ulcers.
Diarrhea that lasts more than four weeks, chronic diarrhea may require medical attention to find the underlying cause and treat complications, such as dehydration.
Infections of prosthetic devices (artificial devices, pacemakers, etc.)
Infections associated with post-surgical prosthetic devices; causes vary and may include foreign body-associated tissue damage, autoimmune reactions or compromised immune systems, or bacterial sources.
