We offer non-invasive ways of assessing liver injury and scarring. Fibroscan is a state-of-the-art method of assessing liver fibrosis, and in many cases, a Fibroscan can be used rather than a liver biopsy. Currently, TLI has one of the only Fibroscan machines in Texas.

We offer other non-invasive methods to assess liver fibrosis, including:

  • Fibrotest
  • APRI
  • FibroSpect

We also offer pre- and post-liver transplant care in conjunction with the Liver Transplant Center at UTHSCSA. Many patients with advanced liver disease need these advanced services, including surgical, radiologic and cancer treatment options. Research with artificial liver devices is being conducted, along with other exciting options for patients with severe liver disease.

Nearly all forms of health care insurance are accepted at TLC, and for patients with no health care coverage, we have alternative payment plans available.
