Hepatitis & Liver Disease

In recent years, our physicians have seen a dramatic increase in the number of patients with hepatitis and other liver diseases. Patients can see our providers at any of our locations, but to improve patient access and continuity of care, Minnesota Gastroenterology has centralized its diagnostic, management and monitoring services for patients with liver disease at its St. Paul office.

The Hepatology Clinic uses a collaborative approach to treat liver disease, which significantly improves the quality and delivery of services to liver patients and their families. In addition to our own team of board-certified gastroenterologists, specialists from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota liver transplant programs are routinely available at the Hepatology Clinic for direct patient care and consultation.

On-site services offered in conjunction with the Hepatology Clinic include ultrasound imaging, paracentesis, FibroScan and nutritional/dietary education

 

Research

Because we regularly collaborate in clinical research studies with affiliated academic institutions, our patients have access to new therapies and treatments, many of which are free of charge to eligible participants. Minnesota Gastroenterology research staff is based at the Hepatology Clinic to facilitate enrollment for patients who might benefit from participation in clinical research studies when conventional therapies fail.
