Welcome to the Sarcoidosis Center
Sarcoidosis is defined as "a multisystem disease of unknown origin." While it can have many symptoms, some patients with sarcoidosis may show no signs of the disease. And though it's more common among African Americans and Northern Europeans, sarcoidosis can affect anyone, and at any age.
With so many questions surrounding this chronic disease, it's good to know that there is a team of doctors at Boston Medical Center who have special expertise in treating sarcoidosis.
The Sarcoidosis Center at BMC is a multidisciplinary program providing diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients suffering with sarcoidosis. For more than 20 years, the Center has worked to improve patients' lives by providing state-of-the-art clinical care. The Center's team of specialists include pulmonologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, ophthalmologists, rheumatologists, and neurologists. In addition to caring for patients, our doctors work together to conduct research to discover the latest breakthroughs in managing – and curing – sarcoidosis.
The clinic has approximately 1,000 visits annually from sarcoidosis patients who come from all over New England and beyond. In fact, Boston Medical Center's Sarcoidosis Center is one of the largest programs of its kind on the East Coast.
