Hepatology

About the Department / Program
Sub-specialty liver clinics were started in 2004, ever since there has been gradual rise in the number of in-patient admissions with chronic liver diseases, referrals from allied specialties and attending emergency services on all days. Hepatology as an independent department was started in mid-2018 with regular liver clinics in outpatient department, along with specialty clinics.
