Orange County Gastroenterology Society members and guests enjoyed an evening at Antonello Ristorante in Costa Mesa compliments of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Mazen Noureddin, MD of Cedars-Sinai addressed the topic of Fatty Liver while engaging the group in lively discussion and case studies. Noureddin’s interaction with OCGI’s fellow members throughout the evening highlighted his collaborative approach to medicine with a bit of humor thrown in for good measure.
Mazen Noureddin, MD’s research focuses on the underlying mechanisms of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), new imaging modalities and exploring new treatments. He has conducted several original studies that have been featured in publications such as Gastroenterology, Hepatology and The American Journal of Gastroenterology, among many others. The Fatty Liver Program at Cedars-Sinai has many breakthrough clinical trials targeting new therapies in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitisn (NASH), including those with advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis.
Mazen Noureddin, MD and Tsuyoshi Todo, MD, transplant surgeon with Cedars-Sinai, visited with local gastroenterology physicians throughout the evening, putting faces to the names of those with whom they have consulted and reconnecting with acquaintances.
