Center for Liver Diseases

Our Philosophy

The Center for Liver Diseases at the University of Chicago Medical Center was developed to centralize the care of patients with liver disease and to develop a comprehensive and coordinated approach to the study of new and improved treatment options for patients suffering from liver disease.  The integration of patient care, research and education is the framework within which we operate.

 First and foremost, we are absolutely dedicated to delivering the best quality patient care for those with liver disease. We have assembled a staff of some of the best liver specialists in the country and provided each with the resources and time to carefully and thoughtfully approach each patient’s clinical problem.  Each hepatologist directs their own team of nurses, nutritionists, and clerical assistants to maintain a continuity of care - something which is becoming rare in today’s medical community.  We have extensive collaborations with our colleagues in liver transplantation surgery, pathology, radiology, and medical oncology to help ensure the optimal management of patients' problems.

On this site, you will find in-depth information about our program, including biographies of our staff, directions for making appointments, information about some common procedures, clinical trial opportunities, and helpful tips about our associated liver transplant program.

The University of Chicago Liver Transplant Program is the oldest in the Midwest, having been established in 1984, and is fourth oldest in the country.
