The hepatobiliary pathology service at UCLA provides rapid, high quality diagnostic histopathology for liver disease on both biopsy and resection material.  Our Team has extensive experience with diagnosis and grading and staging of hepatitis and biliary disease whether viral, autoimmune or drug induced.  We also have extensive experience with neoplastic hepatobiliary disease. Of course as UCLA is one of the busiest liver transplant centers in the world, we have deep expertise in liver transplant pathology.
