Unlike other centers, the DHMG Liver Disease and Transplantation team offers a whole-body approach to liver disease, investing equally in the prevention and treatment of early-stage disease as well as end-stage disease management. We treat one of the highest volumes of hepatitis C patients in the country and our team includes transplant hepatologists, infection disease specialists, and community surgeons.
All of Dignity Health Medical Group’s hepatologists are fellowship trained and board certified—or working towards their board certification—in internal medicine, gastroenterology, and liver transplantation. When you choose a physician who is certified, you can be confident he or she meets nationally recognized standards for education, knowledge, experience and skills to provide high quality care in a specific medical specialty, above and beyond basic medical licensure.
Early detection of liver disease is key to successful treatment. Our specialists work with you to ensure an accurate diagnosis in order to develop a customized, effective treatment plan quickly. Our team includes nationally recognized physicians and U.S. News & World Report Top Docs.
