Liver Biopsy

A liver biopsy is a diagnostic procedure that your health care provider uses to gather detailed information about your liver's health. Sometimes, when there's a need to better understand what's happening inside your liver, they may recommend this procedure.

The decision to proceed with a liver biopsy is made by the specialized liver team. If it's deemed necessary, the biopsy will be performed in collaboration with our anesthesia, radiology and interventional radiology departments. During the procedure, small pieces of your liver tissue (otherwise known as biopsies) are obtained using a specialized needle. Rest assured, you will be made as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

Following the biopsy, close monitoring is essential. You'll be observed for about 2-4 hours by our health care team comprises of doctors and nurses to ensure your safety and well-being before you're cleared to go home. This meticulous care is designed to provide you with the utmost support throughout the process.

Remember, a liver biopsy is a valuable tool that helps to understand your liver's condition accurately. It's part of our commitment to providing you with the best possible care and insights into your liver health
