Liver - Hepatobiliary Pathology

The hepatobiliary pathology service at UCLA provides rapid, high quality diagnostic histopathology for liver disease on both biopsy and resection material. Our Team has extensive experience with diagnosis of medical liver biopsies for children and adult. We also have extensive experience with neoplastic hepatobiliary disease. Of course as UCLA is one of the busiest liver transplant centers in the world, we have tremendous expertise in liver transplant pathology.
