Specialty Description

Transplant hepatology is the study of the diseases leading to transplantation, the evaluation of pre-transplant patients, the evaluation and treatment of the post-transplant patient, and the management of the complications of transplantation.

Transplant hepatology represents advanced training in gastroenterology and focuses on the management of advanced liver disease. Training provides a comprehensive understanding of hepatopathology and diagnostic techniques needed to evaluate and manage potential liver transplant patients. Transplant hepatologists also manage transplant patients both before and after transplantation, and therefore have expertise in managing issues such as immunosuppression and transplant-associated infectious diseases.
