Liver Biopsies are common in diagnosing and staging various liver diseases such as – Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, chronic hepatitis B or C, Alcholic liver disease, Wilson’s disease, Hemochromatosis, Primary biliary cirrhosis, Primary sclerosing cholangitis, Autoimmune hepatitis. Depending on the circumstances the doctor will decide whether a percutaneous(insertion in the liver), transjugular(insertion into a vain in neck), or laparoscopic(insertion in abdomen) liver biopsy is the best option for you.

How is it performed?

We recommend Liver Biopsy if your blood tests or imaging suggest that there is a problem with the liver or there is an indication the severity of your preexisting liver disease is changing.

To perform this procedure a small needle is inserted into the liver, vain, or abdomen to collect tissue samples, that later gets analyzed in the laboratory.
