Treatment for liver cirrhosis

Medical care for patients with cirrhosis has several aims: (1) treating the underlying cause of liver disease when possible, (2) preventing cirrhosis-related complications, and (3) treating the symptoms of cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is a chronic disease, and patients with cirrhosis require ongoing medical care with a physician specializing in the care of patients with liver disease. In severe cases, a liver transplant may be the only effective treatment.
