It mainly deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, remedial and social aspects of illness in older people, mainly patients over 65 years of age. The incidence of diseases such as neurological disorder, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disorder, and increased use of multiple medicines (polypharmacy) are often leading to medicine-related problems, hence these are augmenting the market for geriatric medicine.
