Diagnosis & Treatment

Diagnosis of Liver Disease

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi offers a variety of cutting-edge techniques to diagnose patients affected by liver disease. These options include:

  • Advanced imaging studies: Imaging techniques such as multi-phase liver protocol cross sectional CT scans and MRI scans.
  • Liver biopsy: A procedure that involves removing a small piece of tissue from the liver using a special needle.
  • Paracentesis: The collection and analysis of fluid that builds up in the abdomen in patients with liver diseases.
  • Advanced endoscopic techniques: Minimally invasive procedures that use a thin, flexible tube to access the digestive tract. This includes rubber band ligation of esophageal varices (varicose veins that develop in the esophagus in patients with cirrhosis).
  • Therapeutic biliary endoscopy: Endoscopic technique used for the treatment of biliary diseases.

Once a diagnosis has been made, there is a range of treatment options available for patients. The right treatment plan will depend on the patient’s condition and specific needs.

Treatment of Liver Disease

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Digestive Disease Institute offers surgical expertise in liver and bile duct disorders, including capabilities in minimally invasive and robotic hepatobiliary surgery for the resection of liver and bile duct tumors as well as liver transplantation. Patients’ conditions will be carefully evaluated to determine candidacy for robotically-assisted surgery, which can enhance highly complex operations while allowing for less pain and quicker recovery for the patient.
