The main liver diseases are related to alcohol and drug abuse, virus infections and immunological and genetic alterations, including hepatitides, hepatic steatosis (accumulation of fat in the liver), cirrhosis and cancer.

A hepatologist deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of such conditions, as well as taking care of problems of the bile ducts, such as cholelithiasis (gallstones), working both clinically and surgically. Liver transplanting is also a part of such specialist's scope.

For following up or investigating hepatic or gallbladder diseases, count on a hepatologist at DaVita Serviços Médicos.
