Fatty Liver Disease Clinic

As obesity rates among children have increased, so have obesity-related diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease is now recognized as the most common cause of liver disease among children in the United States. If left undetected and untreated, fatty liver disease can lead to significant liver injury.

NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital has established a clinic dedicated to the study and care of children with fatty liver disease. The staff members who see patients in this clinic make up one of the most experienced teams committed to improving the health and futures of young patients with fatty liver disease.

Our site is a member of the NASH (Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis) Clinical Research Network, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to better understand and treat fatty liver disease. Patients seen in our clinic have the opportunity to enroll in clinical trials.

The children's fatty liver disease clinic sees patients on Monday afternoons at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, 7th Floor North. To make an appointment, call (212) 305-NASH or (212) 305-5903, or e-mail us at fattyliver@columbia.edu.
