Dr. Peter J. Ruane

Dr. Ruane has been treating infectious diseases for almost 30 years now. He is grateful he had the chance to play a part in the rapid advancement of Hepatitis C treatment and welcomes the new regimens that don't require interferon and ribavirin. He was a lead investigator in the clinical trials that led to the approval of the new cutting edge drugs like Sovaldi, Harvoni and Viekira. He is working with all the different Hepatitis C genotypes (genotype 1,2,3,4,5,6) and treating many patients with complex cases including those co-infected with HIV and Hepatitis C and those with decompensated liver disease.

Dr. Ruane is a regular speaker at national and international meetings on Hepatitis C clinical care and research.

When not treating patients, Dr. Ruane likes to swim and spend time with his dachshunds.


Dr. Peter Ruane earned his medical degree from University College Dublin and completed an internal medicine residency from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
