Department of Hepatology | Clinic One

What are Hepatology and Hepatologist?

Hepatology is a branch of medicine that deals with problems related to the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts.

A hepatologist is a medical professional who specializes in treating, diagnosing, and managing the conditions related to those areas of the body(hepatic diseases).

Many organs covered by this department are one of the most important organs of the body. The liver, as well as the pancreas, helps in digesting and storing foods and the liver also helps in removing poisons from the body.

The gallbladder helps in the storage of bile(movement through bile ducts(they are pathways to move liquid called bile)), which helps in breaking down fatty foods.

So, taking care of them should be of utmost importance. Our Hepatologist provides a wide range of invasive and non-invasive services which help you in taking care of your precious organs.
