About This Program
The Hepatology clinical practice is comprised of a specialized care team within Digestive Health, a clinical partnership between Ascension Seton and UT Health Austin.
The Hepatology care team diagnoses, treats, and manages disorders of the liver in adult patients (18 years and older). We work with you to create a specialized treatment plan that fits your needs.
Located in the clinical spaces at UT Health Austin with access to full-scale hospital resources, the Hepatology clinical practice has the ability to provide the most advanced treatments available for patients in Central Texas and beyond with a focus on patient-centered outcomes, cutting-edge research, and medical education.
Patients are cared for by a dedicated multidisciplinary care team, meaning you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained hepatologists have extensive experience treating the most complex cases of liver disease and work alongside a team of digestive health experts, including gastroenterologists, heartburn and esophageal disorders specialists, physician assistants, nurses, advanced practice providers, dietitians, social workers, and more, providing unparalleled care for patients every step of the way.
We collaborate closely with referring physicians and other partners in the community. For patients requiring management of liver cancer, the Hepatology care team works with surgical oncologists, interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists to schedule and coordinate any additional care services you may need.
As faculty physicians of the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, we are able to leverage collaboration throughout The University of Texas system. We collaborate with our colleagues to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to offer treatment plans specific to your needs.
