Liver Disease Treatment
Focused on Eliminating Hepatitis C
The Grady Liver Clinic provides comprehensive care for people with chronic hepatitis C, a growing and costly epidemic. The federal government estimates that 4 million Americans live with chronic hepatitis C. Half of them do not even realize they are infected. Most show no symptoms.
The hepatitis C virus, which can often be cured when treated with antiviral medications, is the leading cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer and is the most common reason for liver transplantation. Untreated, the infection can lead to lifelong liver damage, liver failure, liver cancer, and death.
Why Choose Us
We get great results. More than 95 percent of patients we treat in our robust antiviral treatment program are cured of hepatitis C after treatment.

Grady’s Liver Clinic offers extensive counseling and education about hepatitis so patients understand their infections and their treatment options.
We use a combination of imaging, other diagnostic tools, and lab testing to determine each patient’s condition and choose a course of treatment. Imaging sometimes includes Fibroscan®, also called transient elastography, a non-invasive way to measure liver stiffness.
We offer antiviral medication for hepatitis C and assist with medication approvals and support during treatment.
We offer vaccinations for hepatitis A and B.
As one of the nation’s elite teaching hospitals, Grady’s clinicians have been involved in a variety of research programs that have sought to improve the treatment of liver disease. We have served as a site for multiple clinical research studies and remain committed to doing vital research that will continue to redefine its care.
Every hospital treats patients. At Grady, we strive to treat them better, more efficiently, and more effectively. Our mission to care for all who need us attracts specialists from across the nation. They are drawn here by the knowledge that we test the limits of medicine by innovating existing standards of care, researching cutting-edge drugs and therapies, and exploring novel treatments.
Our zeal for innovation has given Grady a national reputation for medical advancement in areas like liver disease, heart disease, cancer, burn, stroke, diabetes, infectious diseases, women’s health, sickle cell, and other conditions cared for by specialists in our centers of excellence. Access to all of these accredited practices is available to every Grady patient and our collegial environment means that specialists routinely help to care for their colleagues’ patients.
Though clinicians are drawn by Grady’s reputation, most are employed by the Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine, which staff our medical services. Grady is one of a handful of U.S. health systems whose patients are cared for by faculty members of two medical schools. This reinforces our commitment to ongoing innovation.
