Liver Care & Transplant Program

We have doctors located throughout the New York City area.

Our internationally recognized team of experts in NYU Langone’s Liver Care and Transplant Program works together to provide state-of-the-art diagnosis, advanced treatment, and care for individuals who have liver disease.

As part of the program, our liver specialists—called hepatologists—collaborate closely with our liver surgeons, liver transplant surgeons, interventional radiologists, medical oncologists, nutritionists, and other specialists to ensure that you receive the very best in personalized, advanced care, which is provided in a coordinated and compassionate manner.

The term liver disease refers to a number of conditions that can include:

  • liver cancer
  • chronic liver disease
  • cirrhosis
  • fatty liver disease
  • fibrosis
  • hepatitis
  • non-alcoholic steatohepatitis

  • colonoscopy
  • endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)
  • liver biopsy

Liver Transplantation

For patients in need of a liver transplant, our transplant hepatologists, transplant surgeons, and other specialists at NYU Langone's Transplant Institute provide care from initial referral through treatment and recovery.

Our modern facilities include state-of-the-art testing sites, dedicated inpatient surgical and intensive care units, and outpatient physician offices.

Asian Liver Health Program

People from an Asian descent are at a higher risk than people of other backgrounds for many liver diseases, including hepatitis B and C, cirrhosis of the liver, and liver cancer.

Because of this, we offer specialized care through our Asian Liver Health Program. Our experts ensure that care is delivered in a culturally sensitive manner for the diverse Asian community.

Our Research

Our liver experts provide cutting-edge clinical trials involving screening, prevention, and treatment for people with cirrhosis, hepatitis, liver cancer, and other liver conditions.

These research efforts not only offer investigative new treatment options for our patients, but also contribute to advancements in science that will lead to improved treatment and care for future patients.
