Infectious Diseases (Infectiology)

Doctor using a microscope

Infectious Diseases, also known as Infectiology, is the medical specialty dedicated to the study, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites, in all ages.

This is a vast field of clinical intervention, based on solid training in Microbiology and Epidemiology.

Some of the most frequent clinical disorders treated by infectious disease experts are viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or tropical infectious diseases. Whenever necessary, Infectiologists alo interact with other specialties, such as Internal Medicine, Pediatrics or Dermatology, among others.

One of the key areas is travel-related advice, providing information on the necessary vaccines, prevention kits and preventive medication. For this, JCS offers a pre-travel consultation.

The Joaquim Chaves Saúde clinics feature specialised medical teams with extensive epidemiological knowledge, supported by cutting edge equipment, to successfully prevent, diagnose and treat various types of infectious diseases.

Our units offer advice tailored to each patient, based on the most current epidemiological data and the latest medical protocols. You can count on our specialists to quickly restore your health and quality of life.

Our lab also features the most advanced techniques to diagnose all infectious diseases, thanks to the new technology implemented in our Bacteriology unit, addressing a wide range of infectious agents that can be detected using sensitive and precise Molecular Biology techniques.
