Autoimmune and Cholestatic Liver Disease Program
Our program consists of dedicated experts and support staff committed to providing cutting-edge care to patients with disorders including autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). Other conditions that we treat include sarcoidosis, autoimmune mediated liver injury, cholestasis of unknown etiology, lupus, cholangitis, secondary cholangitis, and overlap syndromes.
The program offers effective and personalized treatment for patients with these rare liver diseases. Our doctors are specialists in these conditions, with expertise in interpreting biopsy scans, medications, and more. Patients also have access to our clinical trials, any of which offers new treatment options otherwise unavailable to the general public.
We are partnered with the Yale School of Medicine Liver Center, one of only four National Institutes of Health-sponsored liver research centers in the United States, and the only center in Connecticut that offers comprehensive patient care for individuals with autoimmune and cholestatic liver diseases.
Our team includes three autoimmune and cholestatic liver disease program experts. Together, they provide care that integrates basic, translational, and clinical research. Our combined expertise allows us to discuss and treat difficult cases from many angles. The research conducted by the program is mainly patient driven and aimed at finding solutions that patients can benefit from.
The key to effective therapy is collaboration—we work closely with specialists in adult and pediatric gastroenterology, advanced endoscopy, transplant hepatology, transplant surgery, pathology, diagnostic and interventional radiology, gastrointestinal surgery, rheumatology, endocrinology, and medical and surgical oncology within the Yale Medicine system to provide any additional support that patients may need.
