Hepatology Treatment for Liver Cancer

Liver cancer is often a complication of chronic liver diseases.  Decisions about the best treatment of liver cancer have to take into account how your liver is functioning.

When your doctor refers you to the liver tumor clinic at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, you will be seen by a hepatologist, a specialist trained to care for patients with liver disease.  The hepatologist works with the entire liver cancer team to put together a treatment plan that addresses both your liver tumor and your liver disease.

Our hepatologists are up to date regarding the most effective treatments and participate in research studies for patients with liver cancer and chronic liver diseases.

You will meet with one of our hepatologists after treatments have been performed to make sure that you have responded to treatment and to treat and monitor your liver disease.
