On September 5, 2011, the Einstein/Montefiore Liver Disease and Transplantation Program performed its 50th liver transplant since its first nearly two years ago, reported Dr. Milan Kinkhabwala, Professor of Surgery and Chief of the Division of Transplantation.

Additionally, the Program recently extended its presence into Westchester County at the Department of Medicine practice site at 495 Central Park Avenue in Scarsdale. Headed by Paul J. Gaglio, MD, Medical Director of the Liver Transplantation Program and Professor of Clinical Medicine, this Scarsdale location provides patients who reside in Westchester the convenience of seeing a Montefiore liver specialist closer to home. Providers at the new office offer evaluation, diagnosis and treatment, enabling patients to complete all necessary testing at that location. Patients with advanced disease are transferred to the Bronx location.


“The Program’s advanced therapeutic approaches and treatments include the latest technology for diagnosing liver disease, genetic testing for fatty liver disease and novel hepatitis C medications,” said Dr. Gaglio. “Through a multidisciplinary approach, we are on the front lines of providing new treatments and are able to manage a vast array of patients with liver disease who in the past weren’t treatable.”

The Program, which offers critical healthcare services to its Bronx community, where conditions such as hepatitis C and fatty liver disease are rampant, recently received extensive feature coverage in MD News.
