“I could not be more excited to return to my roots in New Jersey – and at one of the top hospitals for liver transplantation survival in the United States,” said Dr. Gaglio. “University Hospital’s exceptional liver transplant outcomes and Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School’s world-class providers allow me to help teach the new generation of liver specialists while continuing to provide the highest quality of care to patients who need it most.”

After receiving his medical degree from The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), Gaglio completed an internship and residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center and a fellowship at UMDNJ. In addition to publishing multiple manuscripts, book chapters, and abstracts, he has participated in numerous research trials related to the treatment of hepatitis B and C, fatty liver disease, liver transplantation, and the treatment of liver failure.

Dr. Gaglio is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, American Gastroenterological Association, and the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease.  Among several teaching awards, Dr. Gaglio was named Physician of the Year by the New York Chapter of the American Liver Foundation in 2011 and has been consistently listed as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor in the New York Metro Area.
