Information on major tests and procedures

  • Infectious diseases are treated using drugs called antibiotics. The antibiotics we often refer to are drugs that are mainly effective on bacteria. In addition to bacteria, virus infection symptoms or fungus infection symptoms that occur in those whose immunity is not good are treated by administering suitable anti-virus drugs or anti-fungus drugs. In situations wherein treatment is not easy with antibiotics only and surgery is necessary, surgical treatment is performed as well.
