Overview

Overview

Our multidisciplinary team of clinicians uses the latest, most advanced medical and surgical options, including transplantation, to manage and treat patients at any stage of liver disease. Our specialists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of advanced, rare and difficult-to-treat liver disease as well as  liver related kidney disease.

Specialists in Cleveland Clinic Florida’s Center for Liver Disease use state-of-the art diagnostic procedures to determine the type and stage of liver diseases. These procedures include abdominal imaging such as computed tomography (CT), elastography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), hyperenhancement, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and ultrasound.

Liver Transplant Program

Cleveland Clinic Florida’s liver transplant physicians are board-certified and recognized research leaders. Our liver transplant program is an important component of a broad medical and surgical strategy aimed at providing patients with liver disease with treatment options best suited to their individual needs.

Kidney and Liver Clinic

Up to a quarter of patients who have liver disease develop kidney disease as well. Cleveland Clinic Florida offers a clinic staffed by a multidisciplinary team of hepatologists, nephrologists, and other specialists to treat patients dealing with diseases affecting both the liver and kidneys.
