Research leaders in new hepatitis C treatment

Our hepatologists have been involved from the earliest stages in researching new treatments for viral hepatitis C — a disease that affects about 3.2 million Americans.

These medications — known asdirect-acting anti-virals (DAAs) — are now in use, resulting in higher cure rates of hepatitis C.

Experts in liver transplantation

When liver disease advances — and other treatments are no longer effective — a liver transplant may be a life-saving option.

UPMC surgeons at the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute are leading experts in liver transplant and living-donor liver transplant. Our dedicated physicians and specialty medical teams provide liver transplant services and surgery options to all who will benefit, including those that other transplant centers deem to be high-risk or unfit for transplant.
