Geriatrics

As you get older, your risk of certain health conditions, including heart disease, heart failure, stroke, dementia and osteoporosis, increases significantly. It's important that you have a health care team ready to help you identify signs of these conditions and work with you to to maintain your quality of life.

Geriatric experts at Vidant Health specialize in preventing and treating the diseases and disabilities that come with aging. They focus on all the issues older patients face - medical, social and psychological - and work closely with a multidisciplinary team to help seniors live as independently as possible for as long as possible.
