Your Care Team

Stay close to your home in Tarrant County while you benefit from advanced treatments delivered by a compassionate team of experts. Your hepatologist will work with your primary care provider and, as needed, other specialists, such as gastroenterologists.

Screening & Diagnosis

Get insight into the health of your liver thanks to advanced, in-house diagnostic technology, including FibroScan®, a noninvasive ultrasound.

What Is FibroScan®?

FibroScan® takes the place of a liver biopsy and takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. It uses a series of painless, small pulses to take pictures of your liver. Your recorded results tell your doctor if you have any liver scarring or diseases that need treatment.

If you’re not a candidate for FibroScan®, your doctor will find an alternative way to detect liver problems, such as a biopsy (a small tissue sample) or blood test.

Monitoring Cirrhosis

If you’ve been diagnosed with cirrhosis, your care team will monitor your liver closely for signs of liver cancer, which is best treated when caught early.
