Hepatology Services

Hepatology is a branch of medicine that involves the study of the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree (the path by which bile is secreted by the liver), and pancreas, as well as the disorders that are associated with these organs. The number one reason a person seeks hepatology advice is for hepatitis or alcohol-related diseases and complications.

Liver cirrhosis is common for those who drink chronically, as are other liver-related issues. About one-third of the world population has been infected with Hepatitis B at some point, and about 80% of liver cancers can be contributed to viral hepatitis. Hepatitis C is the second-leading cause of cancer, following smoking. As a result, hepatology is a vital and important sector of medicine, which many people seek at one point in their lives.

Disorders that we screen for, treat, and would be happy to discuss with you are below:

Disorder of the Liver

  • Viral hepatitis (A, B, C, D, E)
  • Liver transplantation
  • Non- alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Acute and chronic hepatitis
  • Chronic liver diseases
  • Cirrhosis

  • Gall stones
  • Bile duct cancer
  • Jaundice

If you are a chronic drinker, have a history with any form of hepatitis, have had an abnormal blood test suggesting liver diseases, have been exposed to hepatitis, or have a fever with other features suggesting infection, it is a good idea to consult a gastroenterologist regularly for hepatology check-ups and screenings.
