Liver Multidisciplinary Clinic



The Liver Multidisciplinary Clinic is designed to offer patients a one-day comprehensive evaluation of benign and cancerous conditions of the liver.

Traditionally, receiving expert opinion from many specialists can take weeks or months. At our clinic, patients are seen by a team of specialists in a single day, with the goal of having a treatment plan at the end of the visit.

Every Thursday we bring together a team of experts in the liver field including surgical oncologists, liver transplant surgeons, interventional radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nutritionists. The team evaluates your individual situation and provides specific treatment recommendations for you.

The University of Colorado advantage



A multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of liver cancers is the new standard of care for patients at University of Colorado Hospital. We have found that 20-30% of patients who are evaluated using a multidisciplinary approach have a change in their original diagnosis or treatment plan. We offer a comprehensive approach and provide treatment options not available at most other medical centers in the country.

We are the only hospital in more than a 500-mile radius where you will find doctors who are part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) advisory panel. The NCCN establishes treatment guidelines that doctors all across the United States use as a reference.

Other conditions we treat



In addition to liver cancer, our clinic provides diagnosis and treatment for patients with gallbladder cancer and bile duct cancer.

We also evaluate non-liver primary cancers that have metastasized to the liver. Our team evaluates the best approach to managing liver metastases by considering liver-directed therapies such as chemoembolization, surgery, and ablation.
