Hepatology is the branch of medicine that incorporates the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas as well as management of their disorders. Although traditionally considered a sub-specialty of gastroenterology, rapid expansion has given opportunities to doctors to specialize solely in this area.
To ensure the highest level of care for liver diseases it is reasonable to seek physicians who have dedicated themselves to the discipline of Hepatology. Doctors specializing in this area are called hepatologist. All hepatologists are trained in general Internal Medicine (adult medicine) or Pediatrics (children’s medicine). They then undergo special training at a liver center.

We combine the most advanced subspecialty expertise with cutting edge technology and an emphasis on access and quality.
