Fatty Liver Clinic

Get The Help You Need

Dr. Galati formed Liver Specialists of Texas and the Metabolic Liver Center (Fatty Liver Disease Clinic) – one of America’s largest private liver services – in 2001 to provide a wide range of specialized care to patients with digestive and liver disorders. Currently, Research Specialists of Texas, the clinical research arm of the practice, is conducting numerous research studies on several new compounds targeting viral hepatitis and fatty liver disease.

Patients are warmly received and offered the highest level of care. A comprehensive evaluation at the center begins with detailed medical histories and includes a thorough physical examination, lab testing, and more. Patients requiring hospitalization for more complicated problems are treated in the adjacent Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the nation’s leading hospitals and one of the finest hospitals in the Texas Medical Center.

Patients with metabolic syndrome, fatty liver, and obesity-related conditions will be evaluated and managed in a multidiscipline approach under the direction of Dr. Galati and his dedicated staff and clinical protocols.

With obesity as the major cause of fatty liver and diabetes-related problems, weight loss is a central intervention that is required. Through education, nutrition, assessment, and coaching, weight loss can be successful. Options for meaningful weight loss include nutritional support, physician managed weight loss programs, and bariatric surgery if needed.
