Infectious disease doctor


You can check the condition of your liver and assess possible damage to this organ based on the latest, non-invasive dynamic elstography examination with the FibroScan device.

FibroScan is the first device with clinically proven credibility. Provides accurate and reproducible data for assessing liver stiffness (fibrosis and steatosis).

The result of this examination is equivalent to the result of a liver biopsy, which is an invasive method with the possibility of serious complications.

The list of diseases that a hepatologist deals with is quite long .

Includes, among others:

  • hepatitis B virus
  • hepatitis C virus
  • acute hepatitis (including drug-induced, toxic)
  • cirrhosis of the liver and related complications
  • alcoholic liver disease
  • autoimmune hepatitis
  • cholestatic diseases (e.g. extrahepatic cholestasis: cholangitis obliterans, biliary obstruction)
  • metabolic diseases (including Wilson's disease, hemochromatosis)
  • nonalcoholic fatty liver
  • post-cholectectomy syndrome, i.e. after removal of the gallbladder
  • angiomas, cysts, i.e. benign changes in the liver
  • cancers of the liver and bile ducts (including, among others, cholangiocarcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, hepatoblastoma)
  • diseases related to the liver and bile ducts, occurring during pregnancy
  • acute and chronic liver diseases occurring in children (e.g. cholestasis of infancy or childhood)
  • hepatic vein thrombosis (Budd-Chiari syndrome)
  • bile duct stones
  • dyskinesia of the gallbladder and biliary tract
  • hepatic encephalopathy (a neurological disorder that occurs as a result of liver dysfunction)

Hepatology - treatment methods that are used in hepatology


Treatment methods in the field of hepatology depend on the disease with which the doctor is dealing. Some of them are simple in course and appropriately selected pharmacology is sufficient, others should be observed and repeated after a certain period of time (e.g. mild changes in the liver, e.g. cysts).

A hepatologist specializes in diseases of the liver , gallbladder and bile ducts. Education in the field of hepatology can be started by physicians who have the title of a specialist or a second degree specialization in all medical specialties. Since hepatology is not recognized as a separate specialization in Poland, most often liver diseases are dealt with by gastroenterologists and infectious diseases specialists (primarily viral hepatitis).ąc-sie-hepatologia_45837.html
