Medical Treatments

Medical treatment of liver conditions is overseen by a hepatologist, a doctor who specializes in diseases of the liver. A hepatologist may be involved in diagnosing and treating viral hepatitis, liver cancer, liver failure, cirrhosis, hemochromatosis, and all other conditions associated with the liver and bile ducts.

Emory hepatologists conduct diagnostic tests, prescribe medication, recommend surgical options when appropriate, and conduct follow-up care to ensure patients with liver problems stay as healthy as possible.
