Conditions We Treat at the UPMC Center for Liver Diseases

Liver diseases are typically progressive. This means they often require individualized care from onset through advanced-stage disease.

At the UPMC Center for Liver Diseases, our hepatologists provide seamless care — and will be your single point of contact — throughout the progression of your disease.

With a focus on early diagnosis and timely intervention, the UPMC liver disease team has extensive experience in treating all kinds of conditions.

Some of the liver conditions we treat include:

  • Alcoholic liver disease
  • Alpha-1 antritrypsin deficiency
  • Cirrhosis of the liver and it's complications (refractory ascites, hydrothorax, hepatic encephalopathy, and GI bleeding secondary to esophageal/gastric varices)
  • Fatty liver disease and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Autoimmune hepatitis
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma

In each of these areas, we coordinate our liver disease care with other UPMC specialists to provide the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs.​​
