Anesthesiology
In brief: Yes
Anesthesiologists often see patients with cirrhosis, particularly for emergency surgery, liver transplant or tips.
Liver failure can be extremely difficult to manage because of how other organ systems are also affected. Also most meds we use are broken down abnormally by a cirrhotic liver.
