The Connecticut GI Liver Disease Center
Connecticut GI, in partnership with Hartford Hospital, offers comprehensive evaluation and management of liver disease.
Treatment for Acute and Chronic Liver Disease
Our board-certified gastroenterologists and hepatologists help patients with both acute and chronic liver disease manage their illnesses and complications, and walk them through the process of organ transplantation when necessary. Examples of liver diseases cared for by our staff include hepatitis B, hepatitis C, autoimmune hepatitis, alcoholic cirrhosis, hemochromatosis, and Wilson’s disease.
A Leading Liver Transplant Program
The liver transplant program at Hartford hospital is one of the oldest and most established programs in New England, and over 400 liver transplants have been performed here. Connecticut GI hepatologists partner with transplant surgeons to care for patients with chronic and acute liver disease before transplant and then help them to maintain their organ health after liver transplant.
The Liver Tumor Center
The Liver Tumor Center, in partnership with the Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Center, is another example of multidisciplinary care at Hartford Hospital, with collaboration between Connecticut GI physicians, interventional radiologists, hepatobiliary and transplant surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists. This unique center takes a patient-oriented approach to expedite the evaluation and management of tumors of the liver.

The Hepatitis C Treatment Center
The Hepatitis C Treatment Center is a new partnership between Connecticut GI and Hartford Hospital. Connecticut GI hepatologists, physician’s assistants and nurse practitioners have teamed up with Hartford Hospital in the wake of newly FDA-approved therapies for hepatitis C.
A Center of Excellence
As a Center of Excellence, Connecticut GI is recognized as a healthcare provider that patients continually return to receive liver disease care or treatment for acute conditions, separate from the place of diagnosis. Our partnership with Hartford Hospital provides all levels of care as they relate to both acute, chronic and liver transplants.
