Liver Institute


As little as 20 years ago, liver symptoms were difficult to diagnose and effective treatments were few. Today, many liver disorders can be treated and some can even be cured. Various liver medications and other treatments can prevent liver disease from progressing to cirrhosis, prevent liver failure and prevent the need for liver transplantation. They can also result in greater control of disease, higher cure rates and fewer side effects. Treating liver disease has been shown to significantly improve the quality of life for patients and reduce mortality.
