Hepatology

Paul Martin

Your liver is a vital organ—you can’t survive without it—but it’s also a silent organ because it can be damaged without producing symptoms. As a result, many people live with liver disease for a long time without even knowing it. More than 30 million Americans suffer from some form of major liver disease.

Through UHealth’s Center for Liver Diseases, patients at University of Miami Hospital receive state-of-the-art care for both the diagnosis and treatment of a wide spectrum of liver diseases.

Staffed by some of the world’s foremost authorities on liver diseases, including hepatitis B, hepatitis C and autoimmune hepatitis, the Center is also recognized around the world for its liver transplantation service, available at Miami Transplant Institute.

Our experienced physicians work closely with specialists in radiology, pathology, surgery and other key areas to provide prompt, comprehensive evaluation using the latest diagnostic techniques available.

Liver patients at University of Miami Hospital also benefit from UHealth’s large clinical research program, which puts them at the forefront of the development of new therapies and diagnostic tests for viral hepatitis and other major forms of liver disease.

Liver, Biliary, and Pancreatic Disorders

The liver is the largest organ in the human body. It is also one of the most important ones. The biliary system consists of the bile ducts, gallbladder, and pancreas – all closely associated with the functioning of the liver.
Some liver, biliary, and pancreatic diseases are congenital (present at birth). Others can be prevented. In any case, whether these diseases are congenital, injury-related, viral-induced, or alcohol-induced, they can be devastating to a person’s health and require medical care.
