Cleveland Clinic offers experienced liver specialists to accurately diagnose and offer advanced treatments for all types of liver diseases, from common to rare and complex cases. We have specialists in one setting to help create an individualized treatment plan which is best for our patients.

The liver is the body's most complex organ, performing many essential tasks related to the conversion of food to energy (metabolism). Through a specialized filtering system, the liver performs the important task of removing toxins and impurities (such as alcohol, drugs and preservatives) from the blood. The liver is also an important site for converting food to energy and storing it as glycogen.

When liver disease develops, the liver's ability to perform its metabolic, detoxification and storage functions is impaired. When these essential processes are not working as they should, the entire body is affected.

Cleveland Clinic hepatologists are well-versed in new innovative and comprehensive therapies for any stage of liver disease.

More than 100 types of liver disease have been identified. Their common feature is that they all involve damage to the liver that disturbs its ability to function normally.

Cleveland Clinic hepatologists specialize in liver disease. They treat a wide range of common and uncommon liver related diseases including:
