In North America, the role of Hepatologists in treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma is limited. We conducted a pilot project wherein a Hepatologist participated directly in microwave ablation of HCC at an academic center in the United States (n=14). The pilot project shows promising outcomes, with complete remission rate of 93%.
