Dr. Michael Charlton will lead the multidisciplinary team of experts who will provide care at the clinic. Currently, Charlton is the medical director of hepatology and of the liver transplant program at Intermountain Medical Center. Previously, he was chief of hepatology and medical liver transplantation at the Mayo Clinic. “Few areas of medicine have seen more advances than hepatology and this brings exciting and new opportunities and challenges,” said Charlton.
The healthcare team of experts has broad expertise in the diagnosis and management of all forms of hepatobiliary diseases. The hepatobiliary system includes the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and gallbladder.
The Intermountain Medical Center Liver Clinic in St. George will partner with providers in the region to deliver the most advanced care for patients. Bringing the clinic here on a monthly basis will allow access to the most promising diagnostic and therapeutic clinical innovations.
“We saw a need to establish a liver clinic locally to better serve St. George and the surrounding community,” said Gary Stone, hospital operations officer over the liver clinic. “Now, patients have the choice to receive their preliminary treatment close to home by some of the top specialists in the state.”
The clinic is open the first Friday of every month and is now accepting patients. For more information call (435) 251-1696.
