Answer by abijann
You would be best to have a Transplant Center and
the doctors there, then a regular hospital that doesn’t
normally handle transplant patients. These doctors
are very well informed about any new drugs and
treatment of patients with Cirrhosis of the liver.

1) Mount Sinai Medical Center
2) Strong Memorial Hospital, University of Rochester School of Medicine
3)The Presbyterian Hospital in N.Y. City,
Columbia-Presbyterian Med. Ctr.
4)Westchester County Medical Center
5)Albany Medical Center Hospital
6)New York University Medical Center

Here is a link to other Transplant Centers; when you get
to this site…click in the right hand column where it says
“guide to centers”

A gastroenterologist deals with the entire digestive
system; a hepatologist is a specialist in the field of
everything pertaining to the liver. Many of these
transplant centers have websites on the web.
Some even list the doctors that are with them, that
he may see. Your brother’s primary care physician
can refer him to them.

I hope this is of some help.
