What has been most rewarding about your work?
Our goal is a Life without Hepatitis C where people no longer miss out on fulfilling their dreams or ambitions as a result of this disease. The Key focus is to think on what you can do instead of what you can’t do. Our approach is to identify and effectively treat hepatitis C with the most up to date therapies and
bring the best care and quality in service to our patients. The state of the art FibroScan technology prevents the need of invasive liver biopsy for liver health assessment. With this technology, Toronto Liver Center can provide state of the art assessment of liver health and therapies to lead to the cure of hepatitis C and other liver diseases.
As treatments for Hepatitis C have rapidly evolved over the past 2 years, Dr. Magdy Elkhashab has played a leadership role in Toronto bringing promising new agents in trials to patients in need across a large spectrum of patients. Even with the approval of new drug therapies, he expects that still better treatment options will come rapidly through ongoing trials and most importantly, that all patients with Hepatitis C are curable. Recognized for his expertise in research in addition to clinical care, he has been an invited speaker at national and international meetings. The most rewarding part about working with HBV and Hepatitis C patients is having the opportunity to contribute to their well-being and care. We feel very compassionate to all people undoing medical treatment and truly believe that the work we do at Toronto Liver Center will make a significant contribution to our knowledge about chronic diseases and how we can best improve the quality of life of our patients. Clinical research affords the opportunity for a more intimate Clinician/Patient relationship due to the increased frequency and nature of study visits. We are very invested in the mutual goals of keeping our patients’ healthy and virus negative long after they’ve stopped taking active drug. We celebrate with our patients when we achieve the (sustained viral response), but we also console and plan ahead for when they do not. We looking forward to help more patients to improve their general health and quality of life through providing them with the treatment and the care to achieve the cure and minimize the complication of the disease.
The most rewarding thing about at Toronto Liver Centre is undergoing a journey with each individual patient. We have had the opportunity to have an active role in helping to cure patients with Hepatitis C, and to help HBV patients maintain their health. We are very excited for the opportunity to contribute to the scientific community and understanding of how to better treat these chronic, infectious diseases.
