Dr Rangan Chatterjee: Medical Jedi
Can you actually make a disease disappear? Dr Rangan Chatterjee thinks you can. Often referred to as the doctor of the future, Rangan is changing the way that we look at illness and how medicine will be practised in years to come. His is also the star of the groundbreaking BBC TV show called Doctor In The House, highlighting his effective methods and gaining him much acclaim from both media, patients and contemporaries.
Rangan’s 15 years of clinical experience in the NHS includes internal medicine, immunology and general practice. A medical detective by nature, he has also studied movement kinetics and is a member of The Institute of Functional Medicine. His own journey of learning was accelerated when family members fell ill and now Rangan is helping people to take control of their health by addressing the root causes of their illnesses, something which is often not achieved in 21st century health care with a steady increase in the rates of chronic disease.
Rangan is a super-generalist, looking at as many factors as possible which can create wellness or illness. His talk is a rapturous testament to what will change how we think about disease and help form a map for future healthcare.”
