Liver Transplant

Hepatology & Liver Disease

Mission Statement

The mission of the Division of Hepatology is to advance patient care, science and education in liver disease.  To achieve these goals we are committed to provide:

  • Outstanding, personalized patient care

  • Breakthroughs in laboratory and clinical research regarding the causes, prevention and treatment of liver diseases

  • Excellence in teaching, training clinicians and scientists in patient care and research in liver disease

Loyola’s Hepatology Program has earned a national reputation for excellent care. Our hepatologists, or liver disease experts, are leaders in their field and board certified in gastroenterology and hepatology, as well as transplant hepatology. Our group specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of all forms of acute and chronic liver disease.

Our specialists have developed effective, nationally recognized treatment plans for hard-to-treat and advanced cases of hepatitis B, hepatitis C and hepatocellular carcinoma. Additionally, the team is skilled in treating all aspects of liver disease, including cholestatis, autoimmune hepatitis, alcohol-induced liver injury and acute liver failure.

Transplant Specialists

When transplant appears to be the necessary medical treatment, you will be carefully evaluated in the Liver Transplant Clinic. This is a multidisciplinary team approach, which includes hepatologists, liver transplant surgeons, interventional radiologists, transplant coordinators, psychologists, social workers, nutrition experts, pharmacists, chaplains and financial counselors. Our multidisciplinary team will work with you through your transplant and in the years that follow.

Research That’s Shaping Tomorrow

Our hepatology team is always breaking new ground. Our program’s research expertise includes treatment options for liver transplantation, hepatitis C and B, liver cancer and fatty liver disease.
