We are pleased to announce that a team of hepatologists have launched a new private liver service initially based at The Lindo Wing. The liver unit is led by Professor Mark Thursz, Dr Ameet Dhar, Professor Shahid Khan, and Dr Pinelopi Manousou, and consists of world renowned experts in managing liver disease.
The liver service will be able to offer comprehensive and expert care for a variety of liver diseases. This will include the investigation of abnormal liver tests and assessment of liver fibrosis (scarring) via a state of the art Fibroscan service, using the latest technology.
Speciality care will include: fatty liver disease, alcohol related liver disease, cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, pre and post liver transplantation care, autoimmune liver disease including primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), acute liver injuries, metabolic liver disease and primary liver cancers (HCC).
“Liver disease is one of the few diseases in the Western world leading to increased mortality. It is important that we identify and treat these patients in a comprehensive manner to prevent morbidity,” says Dr Dhar.
