LIVER BIOPSY

LIVER BIOPSY

A liver biopsy is a procedure that involves extraction a portion of the liver tissue and examination of it for signs of damage or disease. Depending upon your circumstance, we will determine whether a percutaneous (needle insertion in the liver), transjugular (needle insertion into a vein in the neck), or laparoscopic (abdominal incision) liver biopsy is best suited to extracting your liver tissue.  We recommend this procedure if your blood tests or imaging suggest that there is a problem with the liver or there is an indication the severity of your preexisting liver disease is changing.

Liver biopsies are also common in diagnosing and staging liver diseases including:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Chronic hepatitis B or C
  • Autoimmune hepatitis
  • Alcoholic liver disease
  • Primary biliary cirrhosis
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis
  • Hemochromatosis
  • Wilson’s disease
