Geriatric medicine deals with elderly care. A geriatric doctor treats Alzheimer's disease, dementia, cancer diseases (e.g., ovarian cancer, prostate cancer), diabetes, epilepsy, heart diseases, osteoporosis, Parkinson's disease, sleep disorders and stroke; plus degenerative disc disease. Other degenerative disease include frontal temporal dementia.
Geriatric specialists also provide anti-aging services and medical advice. A geriatric doctor works with physicians in family medicine and internal medicine in the diagnosis, treatment and management of geriatric problems that affect their patients.
Further conditions such as elderly depression can be detected and managed early to prevent further complications by geriatricians through regular screening of aged patients and their families by the geriatric doctor.
