Welcome to Hepatology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma) is on
the rise in the U.S. and is often detected in patients with
cirrhosis. At the University of Illinois Hopital Health &
Sciences System, our specialists work with each patient and make
pinpoint recommendations based on the disease’s severity and the
tumor’s size and location. Their team solutions may include surgical
resection, killing the tumor through heat or treatment with the
newest chemotherapy drug.
Some disorders require the experience and
resources available at a specialty center such as the Digestive
Diseases and Liver Center. In parallel with our focus on unique or
advanced diseases, our physicians and primary nurses ensure that each
patient receive personalized care. Our goal is to provide a
consistent level of care and improved quality of life for our patients
and their families. Each patient remains an
active participant in his or her treatment. Our physicians help
patients to make informed decisions regarding their health and
well-being. We have a remarkable long-term survival record and an
exceptional system for post-transplant follow-up care. Every patient
receives expert, individualized attention and a higher level of care.
