Transplant Hepatology

What is Transplant Hepatology?

Transplant Hepatology represents advanced training in gastroenterology and focuses on the management of the advanced liver disease. Training provides a comprehensive understanding of hepatopathology and diagnostic techniques needed to evaluate and manage potential liver transplant patients. Transplant hepatologists also manage transplant patients both before and after transplantation, and therefore have expertise in managing issues such as immunosuppression and transplant-associated infectious diseases.
