To determine the most effective, personalized treatment for your case of hepatitis B, Sheba’s physicians will perform a comprehensive examination of your condition. With total dedication to providing individualized care, we will ensure that you benefit from the best therapies for your unique needs.
Treating acute hepatitis B:
If you are diagnosed with acute HBV, it is possible that adequate rest, drinking plenty of fluids and electrolytes, and eating nutritiously are sufficient treatments to enable your immune system to fight the infection.
Treating chronic hepatitis B:
If you are diagnosed with chronic HBV, you might require lifelong monitoring and antiviral treatment. At our Center for Liver Diseases, we provide consultation regarding the need for antiviral medication, customize the treatment individually and offer various critical procedures for patients with cirrhosis and its complications, including draining ascitic fluid, administering IV medications, and placing a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) for selected patients. We also provide consultation regarding the available options to treat hepatic encephalopathy and upper GI bleeding. We also evaluate and advise patients who require a liver transplantation due to hepatitis B.
