Immunology

We diagnose and treat patients with immune system disorders.

Immunology is the study of all aspects of the immune system. It deals with things like:

  • physiological functioning of the immune system in health and disease
  • malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders
  • physical, chemical and physiological¬†characteristics of the immune system.

A healthy immune system defends the body against disease and infection.
