Duke hepatologists -- gastroenterologists who have extensive training in liver disorders -- use new imaging technologies and advanced therapies to diagnose and treat various forms of chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. This includes determining if an underlying medical problem such as obesity, diabetes, autoimmune illness, viral infections, or heart disease may be the cause. We help you manage your liver disease and related medical conditions. If you already have end-stage liver disease, our team of specialists, including liver cancer and liver transplant experts, can evaluate your situation and recommend the best treatment options for you.

Why Choose Duke

Access to Clinical Trials
You may benefit from participating in our clinical trials, which have evaluated a variety of novel therapies, including the effectiveness of certain medications to improve metabolism and decrease inflammation or liver scarring, as well as new ways to diagnose liver disease. As part of the Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) Clinical Research Network, we offer you the opportunity to participate in treatment studies that may test new therapies for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.

National Leaders in Liver Research
You benefit from information collected by us and other researchers that highlights promising treatments. Additionally, the NASH Network directs research on treating nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which is often associated with obesity or a family history of liver disease.

Experts in the Latest Diagnostic Tool
We were involved in the research and development of FibroScan and were one of the first medical centers to offer this noninvasive alternative to liver biopsy. It uses ultrasound to evaluate the stiffness of the liver, which may indicate liver fibrosis (scarring) or cirrhosis.​

Liver Cancer Experts
Because advanced hepatitis can progress to liver cancer, we work closely with cancer specialists to coordinate regular liver cancer screenings. If liver cancer is found, our experts can treat it at the earliest possible stage.

Liver Transplant Assessment
If you have end-stage liver disease, our liver transplant experts will assess your condition and provide guidance on whether a transplant may be a possible treatment option for you.

Weight Loss Management
We work closely with Duke’s weight loss nutritionists and bariatric surgeons, who may recommend lifestyle changes to help you manage your condition by losing weight with diet, exercise, and possibly weight loss surgery. If diabetes is a complicating factor, we work closely with endocrinologists to help you better control the disease.
