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.
