Hepatitis B & C

Hepatitis B and C are viral infections that affect the liver and can cause long-term liver damage if left untreated. While there is no known cure for these infections, there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease. At ARS Gastro and liver centre, we provide effective treatments to manage the symptoms and prevent further damage to the liver. Antiviral medications can be prescribed to reduce the amount of virus in the body, while lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and regular exercise can also help manage the symptoms. At our centre, we have a team of experts dedicated to providing personalized treatment plans to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients.

Hepatitis B & C symptoms might differ from person to person, and some people may even have no symptoms at all.

A thorough strategy is taken to properly manage these illnesses, including the administration of vaccines and antiviral drugs, as well as the monitoring of liver function and the provision of lifestyle recommendations.
