A premier destination for liver care
As the largest liver program on Long Island, we provide comprehensive treatment and management for all aspects of acute and chronic liver diseases.

Improving lives with specialized expertise

With more than 100 million Americans affected by liver diseases, we know that treating them requires more than advanced medicine. Which is why our expert, compassionate, internationally recognized team provides individually tailored treatment, personalized support and ongoing education to our patients through an array of leading-edge treatment options. 

The Northwell Health Sandra Atlas Bass Center for Liver Disease features special services such as patient navigator services; a full-service, pharmacist-run medical acquisition and patient education program; and non-invasive advanced procedures to best care for our patients.

In addition, we are committed to training the next generation of hematology professionals—educating medical students, residents and fellows at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and across the Northwell Health system.

About us

The Division of Hepatology at the Northwell Health Sandra Atlas Bass Center for Liver Disease is committed to providing state-of-the-art, compassionate care to the diverse populations that we serve. Our multidisciplinary team consists of highly trained hepatologists, liver transplant surgeons, liver surgeons, interventional radiologists, therapeutic endoscopists, pathologists, oncologists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and nurse coordinators who are dedicated to caring for patients suffering from liver disease.

Our team of specialists have extensive experience in caring for patients with Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, fatty liver disease, alcoholic liver disease, drug-induced liver disease, genetic and metabolic liver diseases such as Hemochromatosis and Wilson's Disease, and autoimmune liver diseases such as autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cholangitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis.

Our team works side by side with oncologists to care for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to increase treatment options and optimize survival. We provide pre- and post-liver transplantation evaluations and care, and treat patients with complications of portal hypertension, such as variceal bleeding, ascites and encephalopathy, with an array of endoscopic and diagnostic procedures.
