Our primary clinical programs are:
The Viral Hepatitis Program provides state-of-the-art therapy for patients with Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C infections.
The Steatohepatitis Program specializes in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a liver disease that is related to fatty liver that is becoming more common. It is associated with a number of metabolic disorders, including diabetes and obesity.
The Liver Cirrhosis Program periodically monitors patients for the development of cirrhosis, in which scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue.
The Liver Cancer Program features a team of specialists, from transplant surgeons to medical oncologists, who work together to find the best treatment in order to preserve liver function and monitor for possible recurrence of the cancer.
The Liver Transplant Program offers comprehensive care to patients who need living or deceased donor transplantation. Liver transplantation is the cure for many acute and chronic liver diseases.
