Dr. Kaiser Raja is one of the very few liver disease specialists (hepatologist) in Dubai and United Arab Emirates. He runs a dedicated liver clinic at King’s College Hospital in Dubai. He is highly experienced in management of all forms of complex liver diseases such as liver cirrhosis, portal hypertension, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cholangitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, and alcoholic liver disease. Recognising the increasing prevalence of fatty liver disease related to diabetes and obesity, he has developed unique ways of treating fatty liver and its associated metabolic conditions using combination of weight loss techniques and medications. These include use of GLP-1 agonist drugs (Liraglutide, Semaglutide) that can control diabetes, obesity as well as fatty liver. Dr. Kaiser also specialises in the management of children with liver diseases such as autoimmune hepatitis, Wilson disease, metabolic liver diseases and cholestatic liver disorders.
He has a vast experience in the management of liver, biliary tract and pancreatic cancer and can help you coordinate multidisciplinary treatment of cancer with surgeons, interventional radiologists and oncologists. He is closely associated with the advanced liver diseases, hepatobiliary/pancreatic surgery and liver transplantation team at King’s College Hospital in London, United Kingdom and has regular MDT (multidisciplinary team) meetings that helps to provide state of the art care to patients with liver cancer and other complex liver and pancreatobiliary problems.
Dr.Kaiser Raja’s expertise in gastroenterology includes disorders of swallowing, digestion, absorption, acid reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome and IBD (Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis).

He closely works with colorectal surgeons for management of patients with long standing and complex IBD.
Acid Reflux Disease:
Another extremely prevalent problem in the UAE is acid reflux disease. Dr. Kaiser offers comprehensive solutions for acid reflux in terms of evaluation with endoscopy, esophageal pHmetry, manometry, and optimization of medical management. In patients having inadequate response to medical therapy or in those not willing to take medications, he works closely with our gastrointestinal surgeons to assess patients for anti-reflux procedures (laparoscopic fundoplication and endoscopic TIF procedure).
He is one of the very few qualified transplant hepatologists in UAE capable of evaluating and counselling patients and living donors for liver transplantation. He is astute in the management of immunosuppression as well as monitoring all other aspects of long term care after liver transplantation. He has managed more than 1000 patients with liver transplantation. He works closely with our liver transplant program associated with King’s College Hospital in London.

“Patients approach doctors because they are concerned about their health and need genuine advice and help. I believe in providing patients with care based on best available scientific knowledge and medical practices. Providing care with compassion and ensuring good communication and commitment to patient’s health needs is what I look for in my practice. My aim is to always involve the patient in the decision-making process and thus enable patients and families to take decisions in accordance with their needs and preferences. I believe that this goes a long way in improving the patient outcomes and experience.”
