  • Experience. Mayo Clinic treats more than 3,600 people with hepatitis C each year. Doctors are also skilled at helping prevent and treat complications of hepatitis C.

Treatment for hepatitis C involves antiviral medications. In some cases, liver transplant may be necessary.
  • Customized treatment approach. Mayo Clinic uses sophisticated testing to identify which genetic type of virus you have and your genetic predisposition to respond to therapy — so that therapy can be tailored to your needs.
  • New approaches. You have access to experimental treatments continually being studied by Mayo Clinic doctors and researchers.
