We opened our hepatology program in March of 2007 with the singular goal of offering an internationally recognized program dedicated the research and treatment of liver disease. Since then, our program has expanded significantly. Today we provide a full spectrum of services for patients with liver disease, as well as those with pancreatic, gallbladder and biliary tree disorders.
At AdventHealth Orlando, formerly Florida Hospital Orlando, our hepatology program not only focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of liver disease, but also on innovative research. For instance, we have initiated Phase 2 clinical trials for hepatitis C patients giving them access to cutting-edge treatment when conventional therapies failed to work. In addition, we have participated in clinical trials that test the effectiveness of new medicines for patients with advanced-stage liver cancer. We have also partnered with the University of Central Florida College of Medicine to create a curriculum for students to study liver diseases.
We provide world-class, organ-transplant services including liver and pancreas transplants.
