Nuvance Health hepatobiliary disease care: Why choose us?
Hepatobiliary disease affects organs deep within the digestive system. At Nuvance Health, you receive services from fellowship-trained gastroenterologists who often treat these conditions using nonsurgical techniques. We treat a high volume of patients and have experience with rare and complex disorders. Highlights of our program include:
We diagnose and treat many hepatobiliary conditions using advanced endoscopy techniques that are not widely available. Endoscopy involves long thin tubes with tiny cameras and instruments at the tip. These procedures can lessen the need for surgery and provide additional care options when surgery is not possible.
We work closely with the Nuvance Health Cancer Institute when necessary. These efforts include special biopsy procedures that help diagnose cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. We also participate in tumor board meetings to help plan therapies and tailor treatments.
Liver disease doctors from Yale Medicine regularly see patients in some of our locations. This collaboration makes it easier to receive ongoing care from nationally recognized specialists without traveling great distances.
