About Frederick L. Weber, Jr., MD
Dr. Weber’s education includes a Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University, a medical degree from Cornell University College of Medicine, internship and residency in internal medicine at Bellevue Hospital, NYU Medical Center, and gastroenterology fellowship training at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
At Johns Hopkins he initiated studies that sought to understand nitrogen metabolism in liver disease as it applies to hepatic encephalopathy. After training he was assistant professor and then associate professor of medicine at University of Kentucky School of Medicine. There he continued basic laboratory studies and investigator-initiated clinical studies that led to improvements in patient care.
After moving to Cleveland, he became Directory of Hepatology at Case Western University School of Medicine. While there he was instrumental in starting the Liver Transplant Program at the university. In 1993 Dr. Weber moved to Cincinnati where he was Director of the Liver Unit and Medical Director of Liver Transplantation at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
During his academic years, he authored over sixty original papers, book chapters, and served on national committees and editorial boards. He gave numerous medical talks both in the United States and at international symposiums
The demands of liver transplantation drew him away from research and into direct patient care. Therefore, in 2006 he decided to leave academic medicine to devote all of his time to direct care of patients. He spends most of his time focusing on patients with liver disease, but also cares for general gastroenterology patients. He is a fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology and was named as one of the best physicians in Cincinnati. In his free time, he enjoys golf and spending time at his log cabin in the Adirondack Park.
