Dr. Amandeep Sahota is physician in charge for the Department of Hepatology at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. She is also assistant medical director of Transplant Services for Kaiser Permanente Southern California. In this role, she promotes clinical quality programs, implementation of virtual medicine, and data analytics on chronic diseases outcomes. Her efforts have improved patient access to care, advanced screening for advanced liver disease, and innovated care delivery and support for liver patients.

Dr. Sahota led the development of the “out-of-state” kidney transplant program, the first of its kind in California and Kaiser Permanente, which is expected to greatly reduce wait time for a kidney transplant.

Dr. Sahota conducts clinical trials on the safety and efficacy of treatments for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and liver fibrosis. She also has studied treatments for patients with liver biliary cirrhosis, hepatitis C, and chronic kidney disease.
