The Texas Liver Institute (TLI) serves Travis County and the surrounding areas through our Austin office. The office is overseen by Transplant Hepatologist, Dr. Carmen Landaverde, who has tremendous experience in all forms of liver disease and is a highly regarding physician leader, educator, and mentor. In addition to Dr. Landaverde, patients are cared for by Dr. Fred Poordad and a team of very knowledgeable advanced practice providers.
Texas Liver Institute providers manage patients with all forms of liver disease including viral hepatitis, cholestatic disease, autoimmune and fatty liver disease as well as patients diagnosed with cirrhosis and liver cancer. In addition to general hepatology care, those patients in need of more advanced care will undergo pre and post-transplant assessment. These assessments will be done within our Austin facility and coordinated with the University Transplant Center in San Antonio. Our facility is equipped with advanced technology that includes elastography, which is a non-invasive method of measuring liver stiffness. Our goal is to provide excellence in care while minimizing the inconveniences of travel.
