Sharp Coronado Hospital
MARS Liver Dialysis Treatment
San Diego's leading liver specialists.
At Sharp, we value our position as the leading liver specialists in San Diego. In fact, our liver care team has performed the largest number of molecular adsorbent recirculating system (MARS) treatments in the United States. We understand how long it can take to wait for a viable organ, and we're here to help.
A new approach to liver treatment.
Dialysis has long been a treatment for chronic kidney disease or renal failure, but until recently there was no similar treatment available for terminal liver conditions. At Sharp Coronado, our team of specialists will perform the MARS treatment — which effectively washes your blood with a special solution that binds toxins and protects your body from the toxic effect.
At Sharp, we offer advanced liver treatments so you can get back to enjoying your life. With the MARS treatment, we will stabilize your liver condition long enough for you to receive a liver transplant, or better yet, allow your liver to regenerate. In the meantime, you can put your mind at ease knowing that you're choosing care from the top specialists in the country.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
