Hepatology Clinic

The Henry Dunant Hepatology Clinic is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of all acute/chronic hepatic, biliary and pancreatic conditions, based on the method of individualized and multidisciplinary approach. It belongs to the Gastroenterology Clinic and collaborates directly with all the internal medicine and surgical clinics in which it offers services on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, both in emergencies and elective cases.

Through the collaboration of all specialties (surgeons, oncologists, radiologists), high-level services are provided resulting in the improvement of patient management during their hospitalization, the collective treatment of the therapeutic decision, the synchronization of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions and the management of possible complications related to treatments with a multidisciplinary approach. 

The Hepatology Clinic of the Henry Dunant Hospital Center comes to meet the needs of patients for specialized hepatology services in the multi-level operating context of a tertiary hospital, in the wider regions of Athens, aspiring to offer services comparable to those of centers abroad. The Clinic is directed and supervised by Mr. Ioannis Ch. Petridis, Doctor of Hepatology at the University of Palermo, School of Medicine, holder of a Master’s degree in Administration, organization and clinical management in liver transplantation, Clinical Instructor of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine of United States of America, specializing in Hepatology and Liver Transplantation.



The clinic is committed to creating care pathways for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up, providing each patient with the most advanced experimental treatments, ensuring that each patient respects the understanding of their disease and providing all necessary support.

The presence of the Hepatology clinic will offer innovative services, such as:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic Liver, Biliary and Hepatic diseases, putting emphasis on the prevention and cure of the disease.
  • Diagnosis and staging of chronic liver diseases through Elastography, a pioneering and innovative method.
  • Follow-up of patients who will undergo Minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
  • Establishment of a follow-up clinic for patients who need or have already undergone a liver transplant.

The Hepatology Clinic collaborates with specialized centers abroad with which it is scientifically interconnected, such as the ISMETT transplant center in Italy and the UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) in United States of America. At the Multidisciplinary Hepatology Clinic, patients can begin evaluation for a liver transplant from either a cadaver donor or a living donor thanks to the implementation of international protocols through specialized services and in close collaboration with transplant centers.

Through the collaboration, knowledge and experiences are exchanged and the level of collaboration is kept high. Patients undergoing transplant evaluation are supported by a specialized Transplant Hepatologist, who works with the medical team regarding the management of the patient's hospitalization and care. The Center has active pathways dedicated to rapidly receiving patients from regional centers in order to implement patient referral for transplant evaluation.

Close collaboration with the Gastroenterology Clinic to follow-up patients with liver diseases.
