The Division of Hepatology is committed to providing state-of-the-art, high-quality medical care to the diverse population we serve. Our division has a robust clinical faculty and our members are proud of their proven record of patient satisfaction and high rate of excellent clinical outcomes. We strive for excellence in clinical care, translational research, and medical education. Residents benefit from seeing a broad spectrum of hepatological cases and are led by highly skilled attending physicians.
Our region’s growing population of patients with liver-related conditions is underserved, and there is a shortage of providers nationwide. We are addressing this challenge at scale with a new Center for Liver Disease to provide comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services and serve as the hub for satellite practices throughout our region. The division is expanding screening and prevention programs, extending care to people who may be at risk. Over 20 clinical trials are in progress, some exploring the margins where diseases of the liver intersect with other diseases.
The division provides medical, procedural, and pre- and post-transplantation services to patients with all diseases of the liver. The faculty treats patients with liver diseases including hepatitis C, hepatitis B, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, hereditary liver disease, drug-induced liver disease, and cirrhosis and those in need of liver transplantation. Faculty members are actively involved in clinical and outcomes research and collaboration with regional institutions and practices.
The Division of Hepatology provides inpatient and outpatient consultative services at North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Plainview Hospital, and Syosset Hospital.
