Hepatology

Hepatology and Liver Transplant

Advanced Liver Care

The liver is the largest organ in the body and serves many important functions, including making bile that helps with digestion, storing the vitamins, sugar and iron that give the body energy, making proteins that help in building muscle and blood clotting, and further aids in removal of toxins and waste products like ammonia.

What is Hepatology?

Hepatology is a branch of medicine that focuses specifically on the diagnosis, treatment and management of any disturbance of proper liver function.
