Deep learning has become a significant tool in the healthcare industry with the potential to change the way care is provided and enhance patient outcomes. With a focus on personalised medicine, ethical issues and problems, future directions and opportunities, real-world case studies, and data privacy and security, this review article investigates the existing and potential applications of deep learning in healthcare. Deep learning in personalised medicine holds enormous promise for improving patient care by enabling more precise diagnoses and individualised treatment approaches. But it's important to take into account ethical issues like data privacy and the possibility of bias in algorithms. Deep learning in healthcare will likely be used more in the future to manage population health, prevent disease, and improve access to care for underprivileged groups of people. Case studies give specific examples of how deep learning is already changing the healthcare industry, from discovering rare diseases to forecasting patient outcomes. To fully realize the potential of deep learning in healthcare, however, issues including data quality, interpretability, and legal barriers must be resolved. Remote monitoring and telemedicine are two promising areas where deep learning is lowering healthcare expenses and enhancing access to care. Deep learning algorithms can be used to analyse patient data in real-time, warning medical professionals of possible problems before they worsen and allowing for online discussions with experts. Finally, when applying deep learning to healthcare, the importance of data security and privacy cannot be understated. To preserve patient data and guarantee its responsible usage, the appropriate safeguards and rules must be implemented. Deep learning has the ability to transform the healthcare industry by delivering more individualised, practical, and efficient care. However, in order to fully realize its promise, ethical issues, difficulties, and regulatory barriers must be solved. Deep learning has the potential to significantly contribute to enhancing patient outcomes and lowering healthcare costs with the right safeguards and ongoing innovation
