Treatment for Liver Disease and Hepatitis

Liver disease is actually a collection of many diseases that can affect the human liver. The football-size organ sits below the rib cage toward the right side of the abdomen. It is vital to life. Without it, you cannot digest food, absorb nutrients or rid your body of toxins.

While some liver problems resolve on their own, some forms of hepatitis may become chronic and lead to serious complications. Treatment for liver disease depends on the diagnosis. Many liver problems can be treated with medications, while others need surgery. Dr. Donald Girard treats patients with both chronic hepatitis B and C with the most current and up-to-date antiviral treatments.
