About Us

Welcome to Arka

Welcome to the Arka family. Arka Center for Hormonal Health is an Independent Health Care Provider, started by Dr. Muthu Kumaran Jayapaul who is an Endocrinologist trained in the United Kingdom and has returned back to Chennai with a vision to bring international expertise and experience home.

The Purpose built center in Adyar, Chennai provides advanced hormonal health care to patients in an ethical way at an affordable cost. Our centre serves as a super-speciality referral center for Tamil Nadu and parts of South India for Adult and Paediatric Endocrinology. As a part of a multi-disciplinary team of Endocrinologists, Diabetologists, Ophthalmologists, Surgeons, Cardiologists, Nephrologists, Psychologists, Dentists, Paramedical and Research staff we work hand-in-hand to serve patients with a holistic approach. Our primary aim is to treat patients with compassion, dignity, respect and ensure excellent quality of patient care. The atmosphere here is different from most medical sites: it is meant to be informal and comfortable – but scientifically accurate.

Hormones affect people in intimate ways and so need to be discussed respectfully. Sadly, hormones are too often made to seem mysterious and scientific information about them is treated almost as if it has to be kept secret. Hence we work with a positive mission: to show that hormone problems are not imaginary, that they can be understood scientifically and that they can be successfully treated.

We create life-long relationships by changing the way health and health care are delivered in our communities.
