Hepatology is the medical discipline which deals with the liver and its dysfunctions. The liver is responsible for regulating the metabolism and one of its main function is the formation of the bile. Our group comprises experts in the diagnosis and treatment of liver diseases. We are offering our patients the best available therapies, often within clinical trials when such treatments are not yet available otherwise. We are involved in outpatient as well as in inpatient care to treat chronic viral hepatitis, immune liver diseases, cirrhosis and its complications. We are dedicated to train physicians and students in Hepatology. We cover all aspects of Hepatology including care of patients before and after liver transplantation. We are part of the University Clinic for Visceral Surgery and Medicine.
