Hepatology is a subspeciality which deals with disorders of liver.
The liver is the largest solid organ in your body and is located under your rib cage on the right side. It weighs about 1.5 kg and is triangularly shaped.
The liver performs many jobs in your body. It processes what you eat and drink into energy and nutrients for your body to use. The liver also removes harmful substances from your body. Additionally, it makes clotting factors and is also one of the most important organs in your immune system (to fight infections). Liver disorders have increased substantially over the last few decades primarily due to life style changes and have become one of the major reasons for hospitalization and mortality.
