Sooji, I know there definitely are specialist physicians and gastroenterologists that specialise in liver problems, but I don’t know it they can actually register as hepatologists with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. The best would be to contact them at 012 338 9300. Their website is at www.hpcsa.co.za. Good luck.
