Jefferson has had a long tradition of outstanding success in the treatment of patients with all forms of acute and chronic liver disease. Alcoholic hepatitis represents a complex disease of the liver and is often a precursor to chronic liver disease or cirrhosis. Our hepatologists, physicians who specialize in the treatment of diseases of the liver, are experienced in diagnosing and treating alcoholic hepatitis with the goal of helping you reverse the liver damage and preventing more serious complications such as cirrhosis and liver failure.

Jefferson hepatologists will provide personalized care for all aspects of your condition, including coordinating treatment for alcohol dependence if necessary. We will help you manage the disease through a multifaceted approach that may include nutritional therapy, lifestyle changes and medication.
