The Liver Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is dedicated to identifying, diagnosing and treating liver diseases. The clinic is staffed by three hepatologists, and a physician assistant with additional training in the management of liver disease. The liver center was initially created 5 years ago with funding from congress and has successfully treated thousands of patients over that period of time. We offer state of the art therapy for conditions including viral hepatitis, metabolic liver diseases and autoimmune liver diseases. Procedures offered include liver biopsy, paracentesis as well as upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. The liver center contributes to medical education, training fellows, residents and medical students while remaining an active research unit. The liver clinic is a world-wide referral center supporting the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Transplant Service and providing both pre and post liver transplant management for DOD beneficiaries.
