Fatty Liver Program

The Fatty Liver Program at Cedars-Sinai is working to bridge the gap between scientific discovery and clinical care for patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which is caused by fat buildup in the liver. This can lead to inflammation and damage, a condition known as nonalcoholic steatohepatis, which can lead to cirrhosis.

Led by Mazen Noureddin, MD, the program provides a holistic approach to patient care with access to advanced diagnostic technologies, clear pathways to new and ongoing clinical research, and ongoing lifestyle and nutritional guidance and support.
